I was here during my stay in Panaji for two days. Its a climb but totally worth the view from the top. The church is not open all days but is definitely a must see. Will definitely visit again.

As one proceeds, about 2-km on the main road towards Ponda, a Kuchcha road branches off towards north at a place where a cross is fixed. The road leads to a hill on which, commanding a picturesque view, is the Chapel of Our Lady of the Mount. A series of steps leads to the Chapel, which is built of laterite... More

I had read about this must see chapel in my guidebook and they warned that it was only open on special occasions, but I hoped that maybe it was old info (guidebook was a few season old). I made it my first stop as it is a bit outside Old Goa and up a steep hill. There are signs through... More

This was my best place in Goa despite the beaches and other famous locations. The chapel is located atop a hillock and was pretty deserted when we reached there. Also it started raining immediately. While we took shelter in front of the main door, we could not help admiring the wonderful view from high above there. You could see the... More

This chapel is at the top of a hill in Old Goa - some reviewers below seem to have got it confused with other places (it's not like a "wedding cake" - that's the Church of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception in the center of Panaji - and it's a good 40 minute drive from the Dona Paula area)....

Although the church was not open when we visited, the view of the surrounding area was pretty amazing.
