“Very moving”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013

To experience the church with an absence of roof-just skeletal arches reaching up to the sky is surprisingly moving. Moreover, there is a Hebrew inscribed grave that is 1500 years old. Wow

“You Could Almost Feel the Earthquake”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

We have been to remains of the Carmo many times and it still give us chills to think of the people who lost their lives in this place. Quirky, interesting museum is part of the admission price. You can take the Justa elevator down and avoid the line from the bottom in Baixa.

“Special place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

Very good, and emotionant place to visit and stay. The church without the roof is incredible, and now there are some renovation works around. Perfect after the elevator

“This was just okay...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

We went here because it was right by our hotel. The entry was pretty cheap...around 3 euro I believe...but it wasn't really that great. Yes, you get a beautiful view of the arches from below, but really, that's about it...

“Castle”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Not a lot of the castle left but nice views over the city. Interesting area around the castle with narrow cobbled streets.
