Located at the heart of old goa, this church has large lush grounds well taken care of. The structure is a fine example of portugal art. Dont miss the museum in the building next to the church, it will give you great insight into the history of goa and houses numerous historically and artistically important artifacts.

This is a must visit place in Old Goa and would suggest you get a guide ( Rs 100 ). The holy relic of St Francis is on display. The campus is well maintained.

Apart from the "regular" part of the Church with a sculptural depiction of St. Francis of Assisi (the saint the church was named after) holding Jesus on the Cross all the way on top of the big structure behind the altar and also with big paintings depicting the life of the saint on the walls beside the altar on both...

The church looks imposing from the outside and is stunning inside. What makes a journey to this church essential (after all there are so many churches in Goa!) is the museum. While entry to the church is free, the museum has a small fee. If you are even a wee bit curious about Goan history, go.

This will probably be your third church as you walk around Old Goa. Theres certainly no shortage of churches here! And all so close. This one has cannons out front a bit to the west you will pass. After seeing so many churches in the cluster of churches there you soon will have a hard time remembering which was which!

It's beautiful. Among the places to visit in Old Goa, you will like the altar and the paintings. And photography is allowed in the church. Also visit the museum next to the church.
