Photographer's Note

The Carmo Convent (Portuguese: Convento da Ordem do Carmo) is a monument located in the city of Lisbon, in Portugal. The mediaeval convent was ruined in the 1755 Lisbon Earthquake, and the ruins of its Gothic church (the Carmo Church or Igreja do Carmo) are the main trace of the great earthquake still visible in the city.
The Carmo Convent is in the Bairro Alto neighbourhood, on a hill overlooking the Rossio square and facing the Lisbon Castle hill.

Nowadays the ruined Carmo Church is used as an archaeological museum.
