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.

  • My local church where I've been baptised, confirmed, married. This church and the clergy has been there at best and lowest moments for our family. Praise God for this beautiful institution.
  • The Church is one of the oldest church in North Goa. It is located on a narrow road. It is fully functional for the public to open prayers and religious events. The temple had been constructed in the Portuguese style. It remains open from 7am to 12pm and from 4pm to 8pm. Regular mass happens, well maintained and spacious inside the Church. During Christmas and NY season it is jam packed and the already small road will be congested. It is located on Calangute-Mapusa Road, approximately 10kms from Mapusa. It is within the radius of 5kms of Baga beach and Calangute beach.
