  • The place is amazing and it's close to the Hotel (Cidade De Goa). I have been to the Cathedral earlier as well but the place is just too captivating and serene.

  • A very old and beautiful church in Old Goa. We maintained and it houses another Cathedral right behind it. Cons: No guide available and the staff are rude.

  • Se Cathedral church is also known as Santa Catarina. Which is present near to Basilica of Bom Jesus church. You can enjoy the architecture of this church. Not much waiting time in queue for entry. Photography is not permitted inside, outside you may click. Big surrounding area around the church. Very old and beautiful building well maintained. Good place for photography lovers. Inside is beautiful, with high ceilings and marvelous workmanship. Outside this place is a lot many local restaurants and stalls selling jewelry & souvenirs, but don't forget to bargain hard. Avoid your visit during bright sun as it becomes very hot. No dress code at this place. Must visit place in Goa.
  • This place is located exact opposite to Basilica of Bom Jesus. You can walk in to the museum here with an entry of ₹10. Everything is maintained well here. Better not to click any photos inside the museum and the church hall to avoid scoldings from the lady sitting inside the church hall. This place has a restroom. It takes you about an hour to watch this museum.
