This church redefines beauty and serenity.Lesser number of people visiting this church makes for a more soothing and calm environment.It bears the historical landmark for old Goa and modeled on the original design of St Peter's in Rome the look of the church is very impressive with a humongous gold altar at display.

Overshadowed by the Bom Jesus Church in the same vicinity, there are hardly any visitors coming here. The interiors are no less impressive and the lesser number of people visiting this church makes for a more serene environment. Interiors are out of this world & truly impressive. Do not miss this if you are in the area.

For me, the most impressive of the sights in Old Goa. Simply stunning neoclassical interior and a massive gold alter display - jaw dropping as you walk in!

This is a beautiful church & well worth a visit. It's tucked away from the other churches of Old Goa that you most likely read about in tourist brochures so be sure to seek it out

The church lies close to the Viceroy's Gate and Arch of Adil Shah. As far as architecture is concerned, its the finest church in Goa. Its also the only one with a domed centre. There are two towers on the sides of the facade. The interior has two rows of small chambers on both sides leading to the main altar.... More

The interiors were real beauty. It was well maintained n very quiet and calm. Hardly crowded so surely can peacefully explore the place. The Altar was lovely n the garden was beautiful too. Make sure to add this to your to see list.

Having been to Rome to visit St Peters Basilica this church really does live up to resembling the real thing on a smaller scale of course. Well worth a visit.

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.
