  • This small, diminutive chapel is tucked away between the river and the St Francis / Se Cathedral complex and it gets easily overlooked, but I recommend you take the short walk downhill and spend some ...  more »
  • From Outside it looks like any other church, but from inside it is very well maintained and one of the older churches of Goa.  more »
  • This is one more church of Old Goa complex. This church is not very impressive from outside as it is not maintained. However, from inside it is as good as other church of old Goa.  more »

  • St. Catherine is a small chapel but its importance can be gauged by reading an inscribed slab there which shows that Albuquerque had built an earlier structure in 1510 to commemorate his entry into the city and dedicated it to the saint to whom he ascribed his victory. It was demolished to make way for this chapel. Pope Paul III issued a bill in 1534 raising this chapel to the state of cathedral and it remained so till the new cathedral was constructed.
  • One of the oldest church in Goa. Isolated even when in between the other bigger churches and chapels. Has an eerie feeling around it. Worth going to.
  • Historic and looks more an abandoned place.
  • Does anyone know who I can contact about this chapel??
  • This Chapel, built in the 16th Century, is the first Christian structure in Goa and is frequently ignored by the usual tourist crowd. Built in the early 1500s to commemorate the reconquering of Goa from Adil Shah by Albuquerque. And later rebuilt in mid 1500s with laterite stone blocks. This Chapel lacks the granduosity of other Old Goan churches and there's nothing much to see around, except for altar and the stone inscription in Portuguese.
