You have to climb a flight of stairs to enter the cathedral. There is a nice statue in front of it. There are a couple of chapels on both sides of the main... More

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.
