Largo do Carmo

We recently stayed in a hotel overlooking this historic square in Lisbon which was the site of the Portuguese Carnation Revolution in 1974. Also on the square is the impressive Museo Archeologico do Carmo, a fine example of historic preservation of a convent that was partially destroyed in the earthquake of 1755. It holds over seven centuries of history.

The weather was perfect for enjoying a vinho verde or porto tonico at the kiosk on the square at the end of each day.
