The Basilica of Bom Jesus: Old catholic church. Amazing architecture. The place was crowded with people clicking photos, hence not a serene place for meditation.

Church of St. Francis Assissi & Se Cathedral: Near Bom Basilica, this one is less crowded and equally beautiful. Within walking distance of the archaeological museum, you will find great artifacts and paintings.

Our driver told us that this is most important church of Goa from religious point of view.
A huge campus and heavy police presence tells you it’s importance. Inside is positive vibes and recommend to sit for sometime in the church. They have small museum or display kind of thing for a small amount of 20 rupee per head. Well organised.

There was a huge crowd due to some auspicious day. We were not allowed entry even into the premise due to Covid.

Pl check dress code before going to this Church. Skirts , shorts, sleeveless, short dress etc not allowed. Even kids are not allowed in case not dressed as per dress code. You may have to wait in queue for sometime in bright sun for entering this place. though the place is very famous among locals and tourists. Cab is not allowed till this place, you have to get down nearby. Body of St Francis Xavier is kept inside the church. Photography is permitted. Few shops of snacks, souvenirs and selling artificial jewellery are available nearby. Good place for photography lovers .

There is extremely strict dress code for people which was neither told by the hotel staff nor taxi driver..A tourist would not know of it.At the gates 4-5 people are there to check dress code.Women and children are not allowed to wear sleeveless clothes nor short dresses.Clothes should not display hips, shoulders,waist and so on.One need to be fully clothed.Men are allowed to wear shorts.Even kids are not spared.So please be careful and dress accordingly..A place of worship where because of dressing one could not visit🙏May the almighty bless all

Body of St Francis Xavier is kept in this church, so you can get a glimpse of is face.There's dress code and timings upto 4 pm only with a break in between for lunch. Also there is a museum in the opposite side of the road .A must visit place.

The reverence and low murmur of tourist in the church just spoke volumes. St Francis xavier basilica in old Goa, is part of the Churches and convents of Goa UNESCO World Heritage Site. A must visit when you come to Goa. It is a refreshing change to all else around.
