    Convento de Carmo

    The ruins of this convent are one of the few buildings preserved from the great earthquake. The building has been left basically as it was after the earthquake. Inside is a small archeology museum.

    Igreja Sao DOmingos

    This Cathedral is in the Rossio area and looks much smaller than its actual size due to being tucked away behind the squares.

    The entrance of a church in Lisbon

    Portugal is a historically Catholic country, and there are many beautiful old churches and religious buildings in Lisbon. Many are made of stone, with beautiful carvings.
