Quartel do Carmo (Horta)

Tv. do Carmo, Horta

Upon request


Known as the “Quartel do Carmo”, this former convent is located on a plateau in the city of Horta, where splendid views of the house and the harbor can be seen, with the ocean and the silhouette of Pico Island as horizon.

The construction of the building began in the 17th Century, more precisely in 1652, as the Convent of the Carmelite Order. After the construction of the chapel, the construction of the convent began in order to house a permanent community of friars, which was delivered to the Third Order of Carmo in 1836. The ensemble in question is considered to be the first Carmelite expansion in the Portuguese islands, being currently constituted by several buildings. In the twentieth century it was adapted to welcome the Horta Infantry Company.

The permitted use for the concession of the property will be a hotel establishment or another project with a tourist vocation.
