It so happen while I was there, the church was busy with St. Francis's celebration. Amazing crowd. The church itself is a charm and pretty. Had an encounter with the priest, a friendly one! Felt blessed to have seen this place.
My wife and I visited the place when we were touring around Goa! Seeing a structure that is 400 years old standing so tall and in good condition is amazing!! Do hire a guide to learn the history of the church and the artefacts inside...
One of the best historical places in Old goa. It has a very good historical lineage and its light and sound demonstration is worth viewing. It contains the body of Francis Xavier for last 550 years. It should be in every travelers list.
Nice church with good history. The basilica holds the mortal remains of St. Francis Xavier.Best time to visit this place is in the morning because it is less crowded at that time.
