This church is a marvellous place to see the legacy of Portuguese architecture. Here uou can see the mortal remains of st. Francis Xavier. You can see many foreign tourist to see the church and archaeological church site. Good place to visit Goa and one should not miss st.

"Must Visit Old Goa"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Jul 17, 2016
The name Old Goa was first used in the 1960s in the address of the Konkani monthly magazine, dedicated to spread the devotion of the Sacred Heart, Dor Mhoineachi Rotti which was shifted to the Basilica of Bom Jesus in 1964. Postal letters were returned to the sender, as the name "Old Goa" was unknown then, according to then and long-time editor of the monthly, the great Goan historian late Padre Moreno the Souza, SJ. The place is known as Saibachem Goem (referring to St. Francis Xavier as Saib I. E. Master), Pornnem Goem, Adlem Goem or just Goem in Konkani.
The remains of the city are a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Old Goa is approximately 10 kilometres east of the state capital Panjim.

"Goa in Monsoon"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Jan 13, 2016
Goa was at its serene best during our visit this Monsoon. We had a tour of South Goa and covered the temples - Mangeshi and Shantadurga, the Churches and Museum, Dona Paula and Miramar and Colva beaches. We also visited a small wax museum near the Church, had a decent collection of Indian and foreign personalities. Fort Aguada is surely worth visiting.
