The Front Doors of the Carmo Convent

This is our entry in Lost in Translation’s BLACK & WHITE SUNDAY: AFTER AND BEFORE Y1-08.

This are the front doors of  the Convento da Ordem do Carmo (Convent of Our Lady of Mount Carmel) and its church in Lisbon, Portugal. Directly behind these doors is the Museu Arqueológico do Carmo (Carmo Archaeological Museum). Behind the museum is the  Carmo Church, ruined in the 1755 earthquake, which also hosts archaeological pieces in its nave and apse. The church nave is open to the sky, with only the pointed arches remaining between the pillars.


Here is the image in black and white (the after image).
