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..

After the crazy taxi ride and the hustle and bustle of Goa, this was a really calming place. Beautiful religious site with a Hugh amount of history. The people here are so friendly and want to interact And give you information About the place. Well worth a visit!

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

Only the empty church remains but the wood carving around the alter and the paintings on wood panels and in fairly good condition. One can also view the tablets on the floor where important people have been buried beneath the church.

It's just opposite to Basilica of Bom Jesus on the same road. The church is larger than Basilica and is beautifully maintained.

It's just opposite to Basilica of Bom Jesus on the same road.Make your mind to go early as both the places close at 5pm.This church is larger than Basilica thereby it takes more time to cover this place.

St Francis of assisi's body is stored in a casket without preservative. The casket is opened only once in 10 yrs for public view. It is on high rise altar and you get to catch a mild glimpse of his face. If you are interested in Goan history you can go here. You can walk around its campus and have... More
