Formed by two churches joined by a bell tower (bell tower), the Conjunto do Carmo is an example of the Brazilian Baroque style.
On the spire of the tower is the figure of an iron cock, which represents the human weakness mentioned in the Bible, when Peter denies Jesus three times. The churches are separated by a corridor that leads to Rua Itororó nº 2.
Although apparently not impressive on the outside, the Igreja do Carmo impresses on the inside, be it for its state of conservation or for the beauty of the pieces inside. Proof of this are the canvases of Friar Jesuíno do Monte Carmelo (1764-1819) and a holy water sink, from 1710.
The church was inaugurated in 1780, after eight years of construction.

In the presbytery, it has rosewood chairs used for the celebration of the friars’ office. Also featured, paintings by Benedito Calixto and torches of great beauty.
