This church is beautiful from outside but more beautiful from inside. Beautiful architecture. It's near to the Se Cathedral, also close by the Ferry service. Lots of shops and eateries are in walkable distance. Not many people go here so not crowded and hence very peaceful. There is no seating arrangements as other churches. So just go in walk around...

The Church was rich in these old times. This is not the cathédral but it looks like that. I have much appreciated the quietness: in India, it's like a priviledge ! I came here 14 years ago with my friend and I will come back again.

Built on the model of St. Peter's church in Rome, this amazing piece of art is one of oldest structures in Goa. It's a highly visited and equally maintained one too.

It is hidden behind the Se Cathedral. But is an interesting place. Much Different in architecture and with less ornamentation. It has lots of history within it.

As I walked up to this church in the rain, I was just struck by how beautiful it was that I forgot about the rain and just looked at it. Inside I was intrigued by the unique design of how the church was designed and laid out. It was so lovely with the stone altar in the very center of... More

The church, built in Corinthian style architecture is designed based on the Basilica of St Peter in Rome. It was built in the mid to late 17th century by Italian friars sent by the pope (then Pope Urban III) to... More

wow living in Goa these past 20 odd years and I was not blessed to be able to visit this church and hear mass earlier. A close friend celeberated his 50th birthday and since the card mentioned old Goa I headed in that direction. I was surprised to find this beautiful church tucked away behind the Se Catheral. For those... More
