“A must watch to tourists coming to Goa”

during our vacations i went there with my family. It is one of the greatest church in Goa and is cultural heritage of Goa. the good thing is that it is so old but it is very well maintained.

“Give me chills!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

Historic.. Too bad I will not be able to be there for St. Xavier festival. The remains of St. Xavier and still open for the public, catholic or not. But it's on a very high podium.. If it's should've been lower, it's more nicer..

“Solemn awesomeness”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

The basilica is grand from the outside and totally engrossing once you step inside. Tomb of St Francis Xavier is well maintained.
