The building is Portuguese-Gothic in style and is very beautiful.. It is a very quiet place and you'll love spending some time here.. The location of Se Cathedral makes it perfect spot of sight-seeing, as it is located exactly across the street of famous Bom Jesus Basilica.

This was an impressive building both inside and out and showed the conflict of Portuguese and Mughal influence. The history was fascinating. It was just a beautiful place to spend time, of which I would have liked longer.

The seat of Roman Chatholic head, the Cathedral, is having classical style, with a very high ceiling with several altars. The main altar has a pipe organ too

Set in expansive grounds, this large church was commanding and refreshing. Without too much embellishment, the building itself shines, with its large scale and huge spaces. Very peaceful.

We visited this Cathedral many times and struck by its architectural beauty. If you are in Goa please do take time to visit both the Bon Jesus Church and Se Cathedral, St. Cajetan's Church which are all in the same vicinity and in within walking distance. What will strike you about this church is the ancient Portuguese architecture which bears... More

Reached Old Goa very early in the morning at 7 therefore was able to move along the line quickly. It was around a 2km line wound up outside the church and inside the church grounds.
