Looks like that gothic church lacks a roof?

In 1755, a very strong earthquake off the coast of Portugal destroyed most of Lisbon and caused significant damage to the convent. Although there has been the intention to rebuild it in the subsequent years, those reconstruction efforts never went all the way to the end and the church of the convent remained as it can be seen in the picture, becoming a major icon of Lisbon.
