This church has beautiful architecture which is unique. It is in the heart of Panaji and also close to !6 road. It looks magnificent in its white painting and the different levels of steps which is quite a climb. The two huge bells adds to the beauty of the church. One can enjoy the view from the church once on... More

Well, wanted to visit this church for its unique architecture (who can miss the staircase!) and since it is shown in so many movies. It is the oldest church in Goa and the architecture shows it. It is superbly well maintained and has a calming experience when you are in. The two huge bells and the ceiling add to its... More

bang in the heart of panjim, a good example of portugese architect, steps could be deterrent for aged, but worth the effort to experience tha calm and peace in the otherwise hectic panjim / goa,

If you are visiting panaji I would recommend visiting this place. I took my parents one fine Sunday to see the church and attend the service. We stayed there till evening and enjoyed our time. A fine piece of architecture but it can get tiring if you spend five or six hours.

Beautiful white Panaji Church. There are steps to climb and you will never regret after climbing. From above there is good view of market. If you are there in the evening you can see the lighting also. A must see while you are in goa.

Situated on a hill in the centre of Panjim. There are 100 steps leading to the entrance of the church. Beutiful when it is lit up. I loved Panjim a lot. People were really kind here. Shops were cheap comparing to the other touristy markets of Goa ( Anjuna, Vagator)

A beautiful church which, once you've walked up the steps, provides you with a lovely view of Panaji. You'll feel at peace whether your inside or outside the church. My favourite place here :)
