Quite a hike to reach the Chapel but perhaps that may have something to do with it surviving so long. Worth the effort for the views alone. Bring water if going in heat of the day as no vendors are to be found.

This beautiful church is uphill about 2 kilometers from Basilica of Bom Jesus and Se Cathedral. Reaching effort is compensated by a grand and exceedingly beautiful view of Old Goa and seeing a beautiful church. Commissioned by Portuguese Governor Afonso de Albuquerque in 1519, this must be earliest church in Goa which has survived. Its interior is simpler than the... More

You can see other old Goa attractions, Mandovi river and bridge of Konkan railway from the church. The church as such is closed and no service... More

The chapel is on a hill which is accessed by a narrow winding road from behind the Se cathedral area. Cars or bikes can be used to go up though I guess the real hardy ones might want to trek up. You can park your vehicle at the foot of the steps leading to the chapel or go around a... More

We were told to go here for the view, we walked for a long time and thought we'd never find it. It was soo extremely hot it was unbearable. However once we got there the view was absolutely amazing!

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.
