It was earthquake of 1755 took that took out the roof of the Carmo Convent, not to mention almost completely demolishing the city. Sadly, most residents across the city were actually attending church when the quake struck. The convent still stands preserved, as a reminder to visitors and Lisboners alike of the destruction that was incurred. That said, the space is much more than a monument: converted into a museum and sometimes concert venue, its the perfect place to enjoy a classical music concert, so be sure to see what's on when you visit.
