It's a must see in ones visit to Goa. Please take Jerome, he is a guide their and very helpful and knowledgeable. We got to know the entire history of the church and St Francis. Although at some point if the crowd is less, it gives you a very spooky feeling, but we loved it. Must see.

This Church has an element of worship. You feel the eternal quiet even amongst the hordes of tourists milling around and talking loudly. You must hire the official guide who will talk about the history. It is not time consuming- about 30 mins tour on the maximum side. But a must do.

The final sight of a group of 3 churches in a massive park with no pushy sales people. This really highlights the difference between the dead hand of Christianity with the more involved Hindu temples. This is a big church with impressive Frescos inside plus lots of paintings on the walls. As the 3rd of the churches you see on... More

The gorgeous interiors of the 1661 church is filled with carved woodwork and murals depicting the life of St Francis. It gives a feeling of travelling back in time and visiting a place steeped in history. The 16th century Portuguese tombstones and the stunning reredos are not to be missed. Just behind the Church the former convent houses a museum... More

A place with a lot of history and absolute peace. Depending on when you visit, mainly during non-tourist season this place can be very peaceful. Make sure you spend some time inside the church so that you can absorb the peace in this place.
