This church is very beautiful, both outside and inside, the interior is very lavish... there's a 2 euro ticket fee to enter, but it's very reasonable as it includes also entry to the bone chapel in the back, and that's of course the real reason to come here :-)

You are just about to visit the iconic "Igreja da Ordem Terceira de Nossa Senhora do Monte do Carmo", or simply, "Igreja do Carmo". Its construction started in 1719 and continued along the 18th and 19th centuries. The result is an awesome baroque façade, beautiful twin bell towers, magnificent gilded carving woodworks (18th century) and fantastic Portuguese tiles (17th century). At its rear, in the adjoining former cemetery, the curious "Capela dos Ossos", built in 1816. Entrance fee at E$ 2,00! Enjoy!

The church itself was pretty impressive, but I did find the chapel of bones very interesting. It might not be for everyone however. Apparently the bones of a 1000 monks on all the walls and ceilings. Seniors price of 1 euro well worth the visit!

I’m sure that cheap joke has been used before. The church is well worth a visit, but some may be put off by the ossuary. In which case just don’t go in. There’s Baroque splendour galore in the church. But I’d recommend a quick visit to the chapel of bones - oddly moving. E2 gets you in, which is worth it and helps what must be a monstrous bill for upkeep.

Worth a look as only a couple of euros to have a wander around. Stunning Church with lots of Gold everywhere. You can walk through to the garden at the back where the Chapel of Bones is located which is very peaceful and thought provoking.
