Church do Carmo (Archeology Museum)

Interesting
Today the ruins of the Gothic church, built in the late 14C, give onto one of Lisbon's most charming squares. Life came to a standstill here in the 1755 earthquake: pillars point to the heavens and silence reigns. The site now houses an archeology museum. Among the collections are Bronze Age pottery, marble bas-reliefs, Spanish-Arabic azulejos and Romanesque and Gothic tombs.
