  • One of the old churches in north goa. It is beautiful church at the heart of Goa. Very peaceful and very well maintained.  more »
  • You missed the name of the Italian architect who designed the Church in the first decade of the 17th century. Looks all white with a beautiful neoclassical façade. Within stand out the altars and the finely carved wooden pulpit. Here is the only dome still exists in Goa. Definitely the best preserved Church and seal between the ones you see here.

  • Modeled on St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome, it has a neoclassical facade, baroque interior, and hidden crypt underground. Enjoy the beautiful gardens, and lovely art in the church.  more »

  • Went here on the Easter day. Preparation was going on. Overall it's good experience. And very calm place
  • If you walk down from the Viceroy's arch in Old Goa, this is the first church you would come across. This is undoubtedly the most beautiful, ornate and well preserved churches of Goa. The Church is well preserved and quite beautiful. Garden are well maintained Very few people visit this church. Dont be surprised by the deserted look. This Church was modeled on St. Peters Basilica in Rome and stands in start contrast to the rest of the Churches built in the Portuguese era.
  • Awesome old structure.. great place
  • An old church in Goa, in the name of St. Cajetan.
  • An old, scenic church along the Anjuna-Assagao-Mapusa road. Some Bollywood films shot in the vicinity (including some which portray the region unflatteringly).
