Built in a way that it resembles the famous cathedral in Rome, this place is not as famous as other but inside one can find the treasure of beauty and serenity.

Nested within Old Goa Heritage Precinct, the St Cajetan church is impressive from outside as from inside. It is believed that this Church is a mini St Peter's Basilica in Rome and rightly so. The ceiling at the centre, which is in the shape of a dome, replicates the dome of St Peter's Basilica, but a miniature of it. Below... More

St. Cajetan is located somewhat away in a secluded grove in Old Goa. Many first tourists to Goa may not know about it or may not hear about it at all. I highly recommended finding and going to this church, even if you are running short on time. The beauty of its off-white external facade and proportion of dimensions will... More

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.
