Overview

The Church of Our Lady of Carmo, a national heritage, is of the baroque-rococo style (architect José de Figueiredo Seixas with influence from Nicolau Nasoni); was ordered built by carmelite laymen: the third religious order of Our Lady of Carmo – the patroness of the Order (celebrated July 16th), thus the name Church of Carmo. Francis of Assisi founded the original third religious order (Franciscan) and was followed by dominicans, augustinians and carmelites who founded their own. Third religious orders extended to laymen the same spiritual previlages of the first religious orders. The Third Religious Order of Our lady of Carmo in Oporto was founded in 1736. The church is dedicated to Saint Anne (celebrated 26th July), mother of Mary, and opened for worship on the 24th July 1768. This is a sister church to all other churches particularly to the church next to us, the Carmelite Church, so called because it belonged to the Carmelite Fathers .

Don't just look at the outside tiles. The interior is free of charge and has its appeal too. Interesting enough.

The outside of this Church near a very pretty square is a must for lovers of tile work. The whole area surrounding the church is lovely to stroll around.

Like most churches I've seen around the city, it's very beautiful, in a classical baroque style. I wouldn't say is a must to see.

The church was filled with locals during the service in session as I arrived. It was peaceful. The locals like their seats so be prepared to be ushered into a different location. Overall a beautiful church with many various inlays. I would come back here.

Rococo style church with famous blue-tiled fasade located in a downtown Porto. It is worth your time to stop, and visit. It's conveniently located by the University of Porto (across the street), and beautiful garden.
