Well maintained church and the surroundings are kept very clean and tourist friendly. There are no benches kept in the church so we could not sit and pray for there for a while.

All the old Portuguese churches seem to be located in the same area, which makes visiting them easy, and this is another of them. This time I didn't go inside; you can only check out so many.

Definitely beautiful architecture and historically significant. Not being particularly religious, I didn't feel the siteseeing was too time consuming. Shops in the surrounding areas are limited for meal options. On a public bus line which is easy to navigate as a tourist.

This beautiful church that was built by the Portuguese in 1661 is still an architectural wonder. Catholicism in this part of India is in contrast to the Hindu temples in other areas. The church is worth the visit. The peace and elegance of this place...More

Its a simple old Portuguese church in the same compound as that of the Se Cathedral and Chapel of St. Catherine. Very calm and quite inside, wooden carved pillars and ceiling.

The Church was built in 1661 by the Portuguese in the Portuguese Vice-royalty of India. The main entrance is decorated with circular pilasters. The architectural beauty is really attractive and heart touching. Till date it is well maintained and the atmosphere brings peace in mind.
