Just go there, spend some time, pray. Body of St. Francis of Assissi is there. Also visit nearby churches and old artifacts. This church is around 500 years old.

This is one place where you would like to visit again and again whenever you are in Goa. The tall sandstone building surrounded by white buildings on all sides is a visual to the eyes. The un-decayed body of St Francis kept in a glass box is the main tourist attraction of this place.

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.
