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

The Chapel of Our Lady of the Mount was built by Afonso de Albuquerque in 1510. To get to the chapel you have to take a narrow road uphill after Se Cathedral, behind St Cajetan's Church. This hilltop is believed to be one of the places that Adil Shah located some of his cannons when Afonso de Albuquerque defeated him.... 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.

It looks really nice...from outside. It was crazy hot but we climbed to visit it... In spite of working hours due to the guide it was closed and and there was no note about opening times.

Winding up the road to the Capela du Monte is a beautiful ride or drive or for that matter a trudge up the hill to the steps which bode you to put that extra bit of energy to get up the steps to the chapel Once up there the sight is breath taking One can see the Mandovi river snaking... More

Go there at sunset and bring a bottle of wine. It's paradise. Plus the Chapel holds a Music Festival every year in late Jan early Feb

Ok, let me say outright, that when I visited the church, I wasn't allowed inside because of the restoration being done. So all I got to see was the outside and the view. But what a view. Standing at the entrance of the church you get a beautiful panorama of the surrounding countryside (yes, no urban sprawl visible for miles)... More
