The Church is in the old secretariat are of Panjim and is located in the busy commercial crossroad.... More

Right in Panjim, you could get a feel of Goa while you visit this church. Its white. Simple and elegant. It doesn't open at all times of the day. So might want to check the timings before you plan to pay a visit.

Strangely enough, this white gem of a church reminded us of ithe ruined facade of its cousin in Macao. Nice view from it on the city and the inside is also worth a visit.

this is a truly inspiring structure , however the shape needs a complete overhall , theres wild grass all over , steps leading up are not so great . A few signboards to help visitors . entrance is through a small side door & many are likely to miss it . inside is quite heavy with artefacts & works .... More

We reached here at 12:10 PM, and visitor hours are till 12:30. But we were not allowed entry and also staff behavior wasn't polite either. Something i didn't expect in any church. Can't say how good it is inside.

The church is one of the best I have ever visited. The architecture is beautiful and the illumination is perfect in the night sky. Moreover I think its the same church where the movie "mujhse shaadi karogi" was shot( or looks like the one).
