A Hidden House Between Two Churches

What looks like one enormous church is actually two separate buildings. A hidden three-foot-wide house separates the two structures. The house is so thin, it’s easy to mistake it for a wall. 

Igreja dos Carmelitas Descalços was built in the 17th century for Carmelite nuns, and Igreja do Carmo was built in the 18th century for Carmelite monks. Both churches are extravagant sights to behold, making it easy to completely miss the small, humble house standing between them.
