This Catholic cathedral is very beautiful. We were in the early morning, but this did not stop us from seeing the beauty of the old Goa and this beautiful cathedral of St. Catherine. It is highly recommended to visit.

The cathedral and the basilica where breath taking. A perfect way to spend a day. Lovely to see Old Goa away from the beaches. If you go to Goa it's really worth a visit

This is the one of the most important Cathedral perhaps in western India. Part of the world heritage precinct. I must say the up keep is at places only superficial. And rules...with no photography boards everywhere, I could see so many visitors--both Indians and Foreigners flouting the rule. The security seemed to be helpless in controlling the crowd.

This very large church in old Goa is one of the top attractions for a visitor to Goa. Great maintenance. Very impressive and strongly evokes the feel of an earlier era in history.
