If you are staying at Panjim, you may visit this place over an evening. It gets beautifully lighted up. You wont regret the visit

You can't miss this church. The walk towards it definitely gets your curiosity bubbling and from what the locals told me there are always Bollywood Movies being recorded around this spot.

The church was shut and closed when we reached, but they were letting visitors in through a side door only for a peek. Very calm and very serene is what the church felt like and gave very positive vibes generally. Will look forward to going back sometime. Plus, the view from the Church level of the town is also quite... More

The city centre of Panjim, many budget hotels, affordable hotels, souvenir shops and tourist points are located within its vicinity. It located adjacent to the Altinho (Altin, locally) hill and is part of the old neighbourhood of the city. The criss-cross stairways are the highlight of this church. It is lit beautifully at night. Tourists (non-Catholics) are sometimes not allowed... More

A lovely church which is the dominant feature in Panaji. Worth a visit for the interiors, and particularly the side chapels (in gilded carved wood). Masses in Portuguese on Sunday mornings

It is in the first 20 mins drive to Panaji and it is on top of a hill with several steps leading to the church and you get a bird's eye view of the whole city, Panaji, and that is what makes the entrance of the church so unique and beautiful. You cannot miss it. This was the first place... More

You are made to feel unwelcome as soon as you walk through the door. The architecture is nothing special, and no photos are allowed. Not worth visiting in my opinion.

This was the first place Portuguese sailors stopped when they arrived safely in Goa, before heading upstream to what is now Old Goa. Once you have seen the church, exit left down to the street, then left again and walk 5 minutes to the historic Fontainhas district (see that entry).
