Church Of St. Francis Of Assisi - Review
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.

Church Of St. Francis Of Assisi, Panaji Reviews
A serene place to visit. Saw many of the olden art there. The carpet was good enough to describe the site and art. The wall carvings were sharp and delicate. It's really big in terms of height also. You can take photos but using of tripod is not allowed there.

Best place to visit in south Goa. Excellent cleanliness. Cooperative staff. Peaceful and divine place. Important place for Christians. If you like my review please like it...
Worth watching. I wonder what would have old Goa felt in these old days. I would love to watch a movie based on. Old days settings.
