We visited enroute to South Goa, Old Goa is a beautiful insight into the past before disease forced out the population who left for pastures new. Beautiful churches with history by the bucket load.

Corinthian and Tuscan characteristics blend in this atmospheric church right next to the Ce Cathedral.

The church is modeled on the original design of St. Peter’s church in Rome. Architecturally Corinthian in style, the altars are in Baroque style. The church was built by Italian friars of the order of Theatines who were sent by Pope Urban III to preach Christianity in Golconda.

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.
