God's Residence

This church is located in south Goa. The area occupied was large and it will take almost 3 hours to cover it full. Do look at the shapes of trees while visiting as Gods are in details !!

Holy place of Christians

This is a Holy place of Christians. It is very beautiful from inside. One who is looking for inner peace can visit this place. Body of Saint is kept in this Church and it is still not perished in spite of his death after years.

Historic Roman Catholics Church

St. Michael's Church is situated in Anjuna, and is a historic Roman Catholic church. It is in the list of old churches list Standing in Goa as it was built in 1613, to serve the Goan Catholics in early colonial rule. This church has a magnificent architecture but not Gothic, having two towers beside the central cross and interior is also well maintained and a statue of St. Michael as this church is dedicated to him. Only one altar it has and that is also impressive. Truly a place of worship which attracts divinely.
