  • Situated on the Holy Hill in Old Goa, the first thing you notice on the approach road, is the lone 46 meter high tower of St. Augustine, which was part of the church. Only half of the tower stands, the rest collapsed during 1931.The church is in ruins, and there is not much left except for bricks and some altars, including the foundation walls. It is quite a sad and humbling experience, walking among these ruins & marvelling the size and structure this church once occupied. Some sections of this church have been blocked off due to restoration or because it is not safe to enter. Don't forget to walk down at the side of the boundary walls, where there are some notice boards put up, detailing the history & conservation done to preserve & unearth the various columns and artefacts.
  • The ruins of this historical church are in Old Goa, with the tower of St. Augustine being visible from far away. There is not much of a crowd here. It is spread over quite a large area
  • Must-visit place! This is probably the oldest church in India. Spread over a huge area but only a few walls and columns and a part of the belfry still stands.
  • This Church Was Built by Augustinian Monks during 1572-1602 in old Goa, and This is considered the oldest church in old Goa. It's ruins are witnessing that it was a great and grand architectural marvel with four storied towers as facad as only one is visible and whole church turned to ruins. It's bell is still ringing in the Panjim Church which was shifted in 1871.
  • A very very old Church's ruins. It's nice that gov has not yet demolished it. Place takes you in the past. Single high tower, half collapsed, is kinda spooky.
