  • 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 »

  • 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.
  • Does anyone know who I can contact about this chapel??
  • Unfortunately this place is totally rundown. There are no details about the structure or it's history either.
  • 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.
  • Entrance of the chapel is in the opposite side of the churches, so the place will be ignored or some might not see

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.
