  • The place is 1 16th century church. It falls in Nani Daman. The road is well kept. So is the church. It brings back my memories of the Goan churches of Portuguese descent. 
  • It is very good place to visit. I have like it very much. and near this more places are there to visit. 
  • Its near the secretariat, a peaceful church. I went there right before it was to be shut. There were books to read n clicking pictures is allowed.
