The Church of St. Cajetan or the Church of Divine Providence is part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site in India - "Churches and Convents of Goa". The facade tries to replicate the facade of Carlo Maderno to St. Peter's Basilica in Rome. It is a site of religious, cultural and historical significance. Highly recommended.

The church has a large dome but is not clearly apparent when seen from the front. Recently I rented a motorcycle and rode uphill along the road behind the church. From above, the dome is... More

For first timers Trip to Goa must include a few hours walking the churches, basilicas, cathedrals built by the Portuguese.this church is not in the main complex of churches such as Se Cathedral, St. Francis of Assisi or the Chapel of St. Catherine, but it is worth the short walk to visit this building.
