Old Goa means a visit to Se Cathedral everytime. The Big whitewashed building was under repairs when I visited last but this time it was all in its glory. The chandeliers and the altar are worth watching. The museum adjoining it is a must watch too and so are the stone remains of the original building which are now being... More

It was the first church I visited in Goa and probably the best in terms of experience. Its not very crowded. You can easily spend some time and relax.

This has been restored and looks lovely. So much attention that it is even touristy! Be sure to walk out the front entrance and look back at Se because it is a pretty entrance. There is a museum at the other end that is definitely worth the 10 R entrance fee! Enjoy
