    Great place. Usually the crowd is less here compared to the other churches near by. The front facade of the church is magnificent when you look standing under the big tree in the front.

    This ancient church looks a bit like the Vatican st Peter's from the outside. It's beauty and symmetry is outstanding. It's the most perfectly constructed architecture I have seen in a church. It's in the heart of old Goa.

    Very quiet and amazingly white... All white colour from outside in blazing sun. It's somewhat set aside from the complex of other churches. Nearby a gate and river bank which needs a look and a photo selfie.

    It's an architectural beauty. The church is from the 17th century by the Italian friars.The main alter is maid of wood. It's less crowded, a calm and quiet place.

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.
