This church is wedged next to the Archaeological Museum which I assume use to be part of the church's buildings. The exterior is hard to appreciate because it is surrounded and the facade can only be seen from one angle. The interior was empty, though I am unsure if that was because they were doing maintenance/renovations or not. There were... More

The Church of St Francis of Assisi is next to the Archaeological museum in the same complex as the Se Cathedral. It was built in 1661 and has a pretty three tier facade with two octagonal cross section towers. Between the towers in a small niche is a statue of St Michael. The white colour of the church now has... More

It is across the road from Basilica of Bom Jesus. It was built in the year 1660 by the Portuguese as a chapel but was later given the status of a church. The church boasts of impressive architecture, and has some remarkable sculptures and paintings within its complex. The exterior of the Church is of the Tuscan Order. There are... More

This is a late review. The Church of St. Francis of Assissi is located in Old Goa near the Archaelogical Museum and before the Se Cathedral. It is has a beautiful facade and a lovely interior. The intricate woodworks and stone sculptures are interesting especially knowing these are centuries old and still in good condition. The frescoes in floral design... More

...a must go when you are in Goa. the divinity and tranquility in the church brings peace to the soul. I am not a Christian by religious belief, yet I found the aura around St. Francis mesmerising. The is also pristine beauty.

This is the burial place of St. Francis of Azzizzi. The church itself is OK. We walked around the adjoining courtyard. Afterwards walked across the street to the other Portuguese church. Tip: you can wear shorts provided they fall below your knee level.

Out of the three churches this is the best one. The intricacy of the wood and stone work are stunning. The statues are well maintained with their original colours and it has a beautiful altar. There is a ancient carved door which is worth having a closer look at. The interior is somewhat dim and it's a good idea to... More
