Igreja Nossa Senhora do Carmo

Igreja Nossa Senhora do Carmo Review

João Fernandes de Oliveira had the Church of Our Lady of Mount Carmel built as a gift to his mistress. Supposedly, Chica da Silva ordered that the bell tower be built at the back of the 1751 structure so the ringing wouldn't disturb her. The altar has gold-leaf paneling, and the organ has 514 pipes.
