Do all good you can

Archangel St. Michael's Church is situated in the middle of Anjuna and Chapora, and about 20 Km away from Miramar, and is a historic Roman Catholic church as considered the place of birth of Ven. Agnelo D'Souza. It is in the list of old churches list Standing in Goa as it was built in 1595-1613, to serve the Goan Catholics in early colonial rule and dedicated to the St. Miguel. 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 Archangel St. Michael as this church is dedicated to him. Only one altar it has and that is also impressive. Courtyard is decorated with our Lady's Gorotto and the statues of Crowned Jesus on a round elevated platform and Ven. Agnelo's statue in a glass cover. Truly a place of worship which attracts divinely.
