Though this was under renovation when we visited, still the beauty, grandeur and architecture of this place were worthy of being admired. Appreciate the efforts being taken to restore these beautiful buildings. The place is nice and peaceful and worth a visit when in old goa

This church is not as popular with tourists at the Basilica Bom Jesus. It is a more quiet place to enjoy the interior.

Most tourists tend to avoid this church as it is located away from the main tourist destination of Old Goa. The church designed after St. Peter's in Rome is majestic both from outside and inside. There is parking space in the premises which has been maintained very well. The wooden sculptures inside is breath taking. Some old paintings have been... More

Without a doubt one of my favorite churches in Goa. It boasts of beautiful front yard gardens with an archway displayed in one side. But what is most amazing about it is the architecture, as golden hour light falls on it the whole facade literally glows with golden white hues. Photographer`s delight. Once you enter inside make sure you look... More

Among all the churches of Old Goa, this one has the "most" beautiful front yard featuring a lovely garden with a life-sized statue of the saint (who the church was named after); and in a way, it's also "grander" than the other churches since it has a dome above. Inside the Church though, you'll see things "less glittering" compared to... More

This church is near the Victory arch and a long walk from the Basilica of Bom Jeus but it's worth it if you like old building and architecture. Interiors of this church are done in wood which include the pulpit.

I was there in NOv 2015. Old Goa has the famous Cathedral with the remains of St Francis Xavier-that is NOT this church. But if you are visiting Old Goa there are many churches all visible and walkable so just go from one to the next! This one is farther back to the NE direction and had few people. There... More

I visited this church once and want to visit it again as it was really beautiful. The more it was beautiful from outside and it was double beautiful inside. The walls, the candles and all the things were really attracting. The interiors and exteriors were really beautiful. The person who visit goa surely visit this church also.

The St. Cajetan church in Old Goa is often overlooked, as compared to the more famous Se Cathedral and Basilica of Bom Jesus. However, this church, located near the Victory Arch and between the cathedral and the Old Goa jetty, is an attraction not to be missed. Both the interiors and exterior of the church are in very good shape... More
