The structure you see here today was erected on 1661, though there has been a church on this location since 1521. Its architecture is a mixture of Corinthian, Baroque and Tucson. Note the two towers. Inside, note the two large statues - one of St. Francis of Assisi and the other of Christ. The artwork around the church's interior depicts and describes scenes from the saint's life. See the beautifully carved wooden pulpit to the left. There is an old convent next to the church now being used as an Archaeological museum.

  • Portuguese legacy I was truly amazed by the beauty of the church and architecture. Amazing carving work and wooden work mesmerizes us. The church looks amazing from the outside and is stunning inside. The un-decayed body of St Francis kept in a glass box is the main tourist attraction of this place. The Church is just beside the Museum of Archeological Survey of India. What makes a journey to this church essential (after all there are so many churches in Goa!) is the museum. While entry to the church is free, the museum has a small fee.

  • A great place for Goa sight seeing apart from the beaches, do not miss it on your tour. A well inner and outer atmosphere, silent, less crowed, connectivity and transportation is good, parking facility available, food restaurant, well managed and maintained spot with great historical significance.

  • Serene and quiet place. Awesome experience. Beautiful place loved the interiors

  • Such a pity for the works not to be restored fully! Worth a visit though.

  • Relaxing and calm spot to visit in offbeat Goa. It has historical artifacts in the premise, which makes it even more exciting for art and history lovers. Must visit when in Goa.
