#21 of 426 in Things to do in Goa
Attend mass or just admire the architecture at Church of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception, a colonial Portuguese Baroque-style church first built in the 16th century. The church's plain white exterior, complete with a belfry, betrays the bright, colorful interior, which features two golden altars. Around holidays, you may even find the vaulted ceiling decorated with lines of flowers. As you explore, look for the chapel of St. Francis Xavier to the right of the main altar. You can attend servuices in English, Konkani, and Portuguese daily.

  • Best place for photogenic people. There are stairs heading up to this beautiful church. Where you can have aerial view and prayer. There is dress code to enter to prepare for it earlier. Located in middle of Goa you will find street food, shopping markets and parking really along the road side. Best time to visit it in December month or you can come early morning to pay and at evening to enjoy night lighting.
  • An excellent place to sit calm and comfortable for a while. There are seats on the outside of the church as well. The church stipulates dress code for the visitors. Sleeveless and other revealing attire are banned, but you can stay outside the church even in this dress.
  • Beautiful church. One of the landmarks of Goa and identity of Goa. Well maintained. Everyone is welcome here. Adhere to clothing rules while going inside the church. Dresses should not be short, should cover your knees for both men and women.
  • Really nice church with old style architecture. They even had a Christmas crib made out of plastic waste. Giving a nice message to save our environment. Felt nice visiting this place.
  • It's around 5-10 mins drive from Panaji. One of the best churches in Goa. There is enough parking space available around this church and there are a lot of food shops around this church. Latin Quarters is at a walk-able distance form this church. The architecture of this church is amazing. The mix of white and blue colors does add a little more beauty to the architecture of the church. Stairs are there to climb to the top of the church. Spend sometime there and click photos. Best time to visit this is during the day in the months November-February as it is comparatively cooler.

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.
