Day 4: On the Road in Lisboa

Carmo Convent, located high on the hills of Lisbon was once the largest church in Lisbon.  A devastating earthquake in 1755 destroyed most of the building, with the roof caving in on the congregation as they were attending mass.  Today the ruin, with its skeletal remains, soaring arches, and roofless nave create a startling sight for visitors.
