This cathedral which is quite a big structure is right opposite to The Basalica of Bom Jesus. Here the casket of The Patron saint Francis Xavier is kept from the last week in November to the first week of January.

This is just bang opposite to the more famous basilica of bom Jesus. Part of old Goa this along with couple of other churches is a must visit to get a feel of Goa's Portuguese legacy.

This cathedral is just opposite to the Basilica of Bom Jesus located in Old Goa. The place is clean and quiet. The mortal remains of St Francis are bought here from the Basilica of Bom Jesus so people can pay homage.
