“Serene and beautiful architecture”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

If you are into old architecture and structures. this is one church you should visit too. The church has two towers and a magnificent dome (Like that of St. Peter's Basilica in Rome), with its seven altars.

“A BEAUTIFUL RELIC OF THE PORTUGUESE”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

This church in Calangute is beautiful. The facade is majestic and the inside is worth a visit. When you enter you feel you have entered a holy place and you automatically feel like kneeling/sitting down to pray.
