A noble family from Aveiro ordered the convent of the Carmo nuns to be built during the 16th century. It took almost 200 years to build and the Carmelitas Church, as it became known, was only finished in the end of the 18th century. The interior of the church is worth visiting because of its almost seductive wealth. The golden colour of the tally is mixed with blue and white tile and it contrasts with the bright colours of the paintings on the celling.
