  • It's not a masterpiece of architecture, whether outwardly, whether inwardly, but is probably the most elegant church of Goa. This Gothic style church was built by Francisco Salvador Zahid Pathan, at that time Mayor of Bardez, born in Saligao, with project by major Francisco Manuel Ferreira Martins, inspector of public works. The work started on 7 February 1867 and was consecrated on 26 November 1873. The Church has a single nave with wooden covering and roof, Chapel-mor with barrel vault and six altars, being one of them the image of the mother of God who belonged to the Church of the former convent of the mother of God of Dauguim. The interior is your simple and elegant, with coverage in finely crafted wood and gilded altars of Gothic inspiration. The parish house was also built at the same attached like gothic revival, with its interior layout around a courtyard and Windows in arcos singled out or broken, which is the most common indicator of the Gothic style. This elegant Gothic-style church, is deployed in a venue where there are Palm trees and other tall trees, enclosed by an elegant balustrade, with a bandstand and where many young people to play football with friends and where green lawns and outside the green of the fields. Although built and designed by the Portuguese and in overseas territory under Portuguese administration, this neo-Gothic church is inspired by the English neo-Gothic churches, especially Anglican Churches of Mumbai. At the time of the construction of the Church of the mother of God, Mumbai was a place of great emigration of Goans. I advise a visit to this church. Do it during the day, but don't miss the chance to be her night to enjoy your beautiful lighting that it accentuates the your elegance.

  • One of the most beautiful church of neo classical architecture in Goa
  • This beautiful church is the finest piece of Gothic style. The Church is well illuminated at night.
  • The best church you can see in Goa... and the only one with a Luso-Gothic architecture.
  • The church which is built in gothic style looks beautiful and is visible from a distance when you are on the Chogm road. Masses are in the mornings so that's a preferable time to visit.
  • Built in the 1870s, this is one of the more recently-built Goa churches. (The others came up 400 or more years ago, mostly.) Which might explain its untypical Gothic shape. This is a religious centre, though visitors are welcome (as long as they don't disturb religious services and maintain decorum). Masses are in the mornings, and sometimes in the evenings. The church feast is in the month of May, prior to which the village observes religious rites for nine preceeding days (called novenas), with a lot of local participation. Look at the belfry which has some melodious bells. Fr Nascimento J Mascarenhas, who has written a book on the village history of Saligao, called The Land of the Sal Tree, focuses on the church too. You could perhaps get more details from the village website via Saligao Seranade. Just google for it.
