I visited this church past its closing time. I climbed the stairs. The cool air at the top helped. My companions grumbled that I should have checked the closing time. Do wish to visit it again when it is open.

I came here 14 years ago in 2000 and when I saw the church again at the bottom, I had a kind of flash. Old souvenirs came back, it's a very attractive monument for your caméra, although it is not permitted to take photos inside.

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.
