“Great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

It's a little far from the beaches, if that's where your hotel is located. If you went to a Jesuit school/college then visiting the tomb of St. Xavier is going to give you some goosebumps-moments. It's almost always very crowded with pilgrims and tourists. It's a good idea to read up on this place before you visit. No need to hire a guide.

“An intimate touch with Christian Saint”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

A wonderful place to experience Portuguese culture in this solemn monument dedicated to the great St Francis Xavier. You can view the mortal remains of this great Saint which is kept inside - above the church. An experience where you can commune with silence and peace. Veneration of this great saint takes place periodically after some years, when the saint's body will be brought outside the church, where people can pay their homage
