  • Its a beautiful Church in Saligao, with lovely road side sitting on the main road its been a tourist spot . 
  • We saw photos of the Mae De Deus Church in Saligao and decided to pay it a visit during our recent trip to Goa. As we approached it, we saw that the photos did not quite do justice to the church's bea...  more »

  • 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.
