Old Goa Once the administrative capital of the Portuguese empire in the East, Old Goa is blessed with churches, chapels and convents of unsurpassed architectural beauty, befitting its label as ‘Golden Goa’ or ‘Rome of the East’
The conquest of Goa by Afonso de Albuquerque in 1510 saw the advent of several religious orders like the Franciscans, Jesuits, Augustinians, Dominicans and Carmelites, who left their stamp with the many monuments they built in Old Goa
Basilica of Bom Jesus Built in the 16th century, this magnificent edifice is the most popular and famous of all the churches in Goa
The mortal remains of St
Francis Xavier, kept in a Silver casket, are enshrined here
The casket was wrought by Goan silversmiths in 1636 - 37
Dedicated to Infant Jesus, this church is now a World Heritage Monument
Se Cathedral The most imposing of all the churches at Old Goa, its vaulted interior overwhelms visitors with its sheer grandeur
This Cathedral has five bells, among them the famous Golden bell, the biggest in Goa and one of the best in the world
The church is dedicated to St.Catherine of Alexandria.
Church of St.Francis of Assissi The entrance and the choir were built in the Manueline style, the only fragment of its kind in the East
First built in 1517, it was later rebuilt twice, in 1521 and in 1661
The interior is illustrated with exquisite paintings and the floor has a large number of tombstones with coats-of-arms
