Part of the charm of Largo do Carmo is the Convento do Carmo (see my tip about the Convento), which is obviously located in this Square. The Largo, however, is worthy of a visit on its own, partly because it is a beautiful and relaxed square dotted with benches, arbours and statues and partly because the surrounding buildings make you feel like you're in some sort of a time-free zone. Many of the shops around the Largo have their original doors and windows and its an absolute delight to wonder around looking at the many bookstores and map shops with items that seem as antique as the place itself.

Address: Largo do Carmo
