Fodor's Review

The Carmelite Convent—once Lisbon's largest—was all but ruined by the 1755 earthquake, and its skeletal remains are stark reminders of the quake's devastating impact. Its sacristy houses the Museu Arqueológico do Carmo (Archaeological Museum), a small collection of ceramic tiles, medieval tombs, ancient coins, and other city finds. The tree-shaded square outside—accessible via a walkway from the top of the Elevador da Santa Justa —is a great place to dawdle over a coffee.
