It is basically ruins of an abandoned church from the Portuguese times. It is well-preserved, and you will find yourself walking through old times. We didn't see many people here, guess people were on the beaches! You will get many photo-ops here. But also remember, it is still church premises. Don't miss this place. Be careful of your step though,... More

This place is more of The Remains of Church and Monastery of St Augustine. A Legacy which is not very well protected. But still part of a legacy and our history.

Now there is only ruins of Church and Monastery of St Augustine. One small multi storied wall and huge compound suggest how marvellous the structure would have been in past. Those who are interested in history and architecture must visit this Marvellous ruins.

This may seem barren and useless to non-history lovers. It’s a very old church which was ordered to be destroyed by the then government and over the ages it has fallen down leaves the base and a corner of the structure. So once you try to paint your imagination and try to draw the volume of the “once in glory”... More

Its ruins of a church. It has been destroyed due to lack of maintenance unlike other ruins in India, which is destroyed due to invasions. It has more than 650 years of history, but without proper guide, I think you cannot get any of it. Better visit with a knowledgeable local contact.

A very calm and peaceful place. Very few tourists visit here. You won't believe that it's just 500 metres away from the crowded Basilica of Bom Jesus. The place is almost deserted by late afternoon with few people around. There are couple of other things to see in the vicinity like a museum and a small church. The day I... More

What a serene location. I got goosebumps as I walked into 650 years of history. The fallen church against the grey of the Goan monsoon sky spoke of the fragility of human nature! Its extremely well maintained by the Archaeological Survey of India.
