The Basilica houses the mortal remains of St.Francis Xavier, which is seen within a crystal coffin. The building looks old and ruined from the outside. A must-see site in Goa.

It takes you back centuries. On entering the church you do feel you are in the presence of a higher being. The experience leaves you feeling philosophical

Clean and neatly maintained place, a bit of history of 400 years is visible to general public.


On a sunny day, the interiors of the basillica is nicly lit and provides ample opportunity for flash less photography

the atmosphere and architectural heritage were fantastic. But crowd hours are too much, you loose all peace of mind you expect to get, as the place gets flooded with shutter bugs.

Guess since most of us Indians are now so used to the English style of architecture ... this Portuguese church is a whiff of fresh air!
Beautifully done up with the huge main building is simply a treat to watch ... n the amount of inner peace it offers you is just an experience to remember.
Words do not do any justice to this beautiful place of worship ... one has to b there in person to feel it.
Goal visit is not complete without it.
