St. Alex Church, Calangute

4.4
Admire the striking white facade of St. Alex Church, where thousands of Christian devotees gather for prayer and communion. Built in 1741 by the village communities, the church was financed thanks to donations and the goodwill of locals. As you approach the compound, notice how the dome resembles that of St. Peter's Basilica in Rome. Examine the Indian-style "cupola falsa" inside, as well as the seven altars and the main sanctuary. Afterwards, head outside to the churchyard to see the Grotto of Our Lady. The museum nearby offers a detailed history of the church. Put St. Alex Church into our Goa route maker site to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Goa.

Where to stay in Goa

One of the more affordable regions for staying in India, Goa offers a good range of sleeping options, from budget to luxurious. Visitors looking for that feeling of home away from home can explore rental apartments, which offer more space than a hotel room and often come with fully equipped kitchens. Look for an apartment in Oxel or Siolim, peaceful villages with gated communities and a range of facilities. Beach houses and private villas offer an alternative for those with deeper pockets, while beach huts/shacks work well for budget-conscious travelers.
