It is one of the largest churches in India. Very beautiful architecture and well maintained, must visit place. Note : dress code is prescribed before entry in church. Shorts ans sleeveless not allowed.
  • It is one of the oldest church in Goa. Visitors are advised to be dressed properly. This church is under renovation for some time now. Even the ruins look pretty mesmerizing if you are a fan of old monuments. Its next to famous church" Basilica of Bom Jesus" so don't miss it.
  • Nice church to visit when you are in Old Goa. Well maintained n have museum near it. In front of church there is Jesus statue, which looks divine. Overall good place. Inside, there are various Jesus periodical status placed which looks divine. Various saying/quotes from Bible are quoted on wall. Structural architecture is awesome. Moreover, When I had visited this church there very wedding was going on, felt delighted to watch goan wedding. Note:- dress code is prescribed at gate prior visiting inside church. Especially for ladies, legs should be covered; head scarf comes handy at this time.
