Portugese legacy

To be admired and appreciated is the magnificent old architecture, the rich and elaborate decorations, and the minds and dedication of the people who brought these to fruition.

The statues of St. Peter, St. Michael and St. Paul are also seen here. Painted panels portraying the life of St. Francis of Assisi are retained on the adjoining walls. The interior is... More

The main attraction of this place is the detailed work on and around the main altar. There are a number of Christian paintings, and wooden panels depicting the lives... More

to people who have been abroad, the church may not look very impressive. nevertheless, it is a must visit place and experience is best gone thru' rather than described. the ambience gives you peace after you had all the hustle and bustle of Goa nd beaches..

The Church of St. Francis of Assisi is a very old Church and people come flocking to it from all over the world. In any place of worship one feels peace and oneness with God! Keep the faith, God listens to all our prayers!

Paintings that are faded with years but rich in heritage. Stonework is ornate and the light is always dim but surreal.

I had sprained my foot quite badly the day before I had gone to the Church of St. Francis of Assissi. I was very glad to find the security guards react promptly to the issue. The church complex is quite large (including the Bom Jesus Basilica facing it) and when they found me limping towards the entrance, they offered me... More
