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.

  • The church is pretty much on a main road and very accessible. Have visited twice and love how beautiful it looks. I think there is a dress code if you want to go in. So, make sure to dress modestly.  more »

  • Really a calm and Satisfying place. The place is best to be explored in the evening time. A must place if you are visiting Goa. You have some decent food outlets and restaurant near by. I have a very fond memories from this place.
  • One of the beautiful church in the heart of Goa. However there are timings to visit this place. Also dress code policy is too applied. No sleeveless we're allowed when we went there. Parking issues are a lot since there is no dedicated parking lot here. Once you can confirm the timings before you visit the church.
  • One of the most popular churches in Goa, visible in several Bollywood movies. You'll be able to identify it immediately on seeing it. It looks huge from the front and has got a series of staircases leading to the main hall. The lighting at night is fantastic and the gives an awesome feel to the exterior of the church. Unfortunately we couldn't go inside as we were late and the church was closed.
  • We visited this church especially after watching the movie simmba. The church is really a calming place. The atmosphere there is really peaceful and beautiful. A recommended place to visit for sure!!
  • The time I visited this church, it was closed. But I loved how classic the exterior looked and can easily judge how beautiful could be the interior. Maybe that's the reason why it is used for the shooting purposes.
