Carmo Convent

Lisbon, Portugal

The Carmo Convent - also known as the Convent of Our Lady of Mount Carmel - is a former nunnery that was ruined during one of the deadliest earthquakes in history. The 1755 Lisbon earthquake destroyed the entire city and put the Carmo convent and church in ruins, with its library of 5000 books destroyed.

Today the ruined arches stand in the middle of the rebuilt city as a reminder of the worst day in Lisbon’s history.
