Carmo Church Sep 19, 2013
Carmo Church is the largest one of the renovated churches in Alcantara that I have seen. It is located on the end of the Rue Grande on the top of the Alcantara hill. Surrounded with blackened and destroyed palaces this church towers over dead town. Inside, few chapels have a bit baroque looking design, but most of the church is not that ornate. Behind the church are living quarters of the clergy, leaning on the falling apart walls of the building that was next to it. It is surreal to see this white towers coming over the remains of the city. Vegetation is incredibly green and overpowering. I love how nature takes over…
