This is very old and famous church among tourist, just feel the royalty by wearing some trendy clothes, caps and glasses. An old mummy is preserved here, very good place for photography, two churches are face to face, visit both and enjoy the leaning trees, gardens and flowers.

entering the church made me feel as if I was walking through history. Felt as if I was blessed walking in and could feel the great energy of so many saintly souls who might have graced this place. I am not a christian, but more of an universal-hindu, so this is a feeling I normally get when entering some of the greatest Hindu temples of south India. An amazing spiritual experience worth your time.

The church is located within the ASI administered Museum of Goa.

They're tried to build it in the style of St. Peter's Basilica. We have been to Rome and i can say sincerely that they've succeeded !

The two long corridors leading up to the altar, the central arched nave where the black and gold structure stands in St. Peter's is faithfully reproduced. The various arched doorways etched in marble with different saints' stories and figurines are also reproduced to a certain extent. Only the large concrete dome in the center is missing, due to lack of space, i think...

Also some tapestries adorn the walls like in the Sistine Chapel. Don't miss it if you have the time !

Beautiful church which displays a Barque and Corinthan architecture. There is a museum inside which displays artefacts, paintings and stunning sculptures.
