Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What travellers are saying
- This ancient church gives a glimpse into the architecture and culture of those times.
It's a pleasure to walk along and soak in the environment.
However the painting gallery on the first floor makes you wish that the maintenance of all those ancient paintings and sculptures is done in a better manner.Written 7 December 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- First - no matter when you go there, church is closed for general public. Members who attend mass take the route from the adjacent building. so it doesnt matter its lunch, dinner or breakfast time. not sure why people just write what they think right and misguide other travellers. This has happened post pandemic
Secondly - There is no "official" parking nearby. if you get one then you are lucky OR hire a taxi whose driver will wait for you in nearby street.
traffic can be an issue in nearby streets.
The bell here is the second largest in Goa.Written 30 October 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- A unique Christian shrine is kept here — a growing cross. The legend says that a shepherd in the XVII century decided to carve a wooden crucifix. And allegedly Jesus himself appeared to him. Grateful Christians decided to place this cross in the chapel of the Cathedral. And a miracle happened — an ordinary wooden cross began to grow. The cathedral is open for excursions, which allows everyone to take a look at the wonderful cross.Written 29 May 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- What beautiful architecture. What a peaceful place. Must visit.
We went as a family of 10 across 3 generations and everyone loved it. We missed the "aarti" but one shall try to make it.
Loved it.Written 3 November 2023
- The construction of the churchwas completed in 1661. The design of the church resembles St. . Peter's Basilica in Rome. Perhaps this similarity is due to the fact that the head of the construction of the project was an Italian monk of the Order of Theatines. The church is dedicated to Our Lady of Divine Conduct, but bears the name of Saint Cajetan, the founder of the Order of Theatines. The architectural idea of the church is in many ways similar to similar Catholic churches in Goa, but it is the only surviving domed Catholic church in Goa. The church is made in the Corinthian style, while the gilded altars decorated with rich carvings represent the Baroque style. Must see!Written 23 January 2023
- A huge 17th century Portuguese style mansion filled with antique furniture, relics and historical artifacts. It is known to be more than 400 years old. Breaganza Pereira was representing Goa under the Portuguese government as the vice consul general in Spain. He was gifted the land by the king of Portugal., Don Luiz.Written 14 January 2021
- A very interesting architectural style ((roman mannerist aka Raphael and Michelangelo} The twin towers soar up to the heavens. Imagine in the 16th century how this would have been awe inspiring in the local agrarian environs. A truly beautiful church which is very dear to me.Written 23 February 2023
- this Arch is in one far corner if you are walking towards the Mandovi river (near Adil Shah Palace gateway) , most of the tourists would miss seeing this arch due to its location (away from the main road) and we just happened to see this beautiful Arch while going for a lovely lunch at Greenyard restaurant & Bar located closeby. Sharing a picture I clicked ...
This Arch was built in the memory of Vasco da Gama in 1597 by his great grandson and used to carry a lot of historical importanceWritten 30 June 2020
- Nice walk down memory lane. Nickeyvcurated although the audio could have been somewhat better. If the guide there would have spoken it would have been the best. But kudos to the effort in keeping and documenting everythingWritten 21 November 2018
- A very quiet but beautiful temple on the outskirts of Panjim. It takes 5 minutes to walk to the temple from the parking area. There is an absence of beggers in around the temple which mean you can do Darsham without distractions. A nice temple to visit. One of two key templesWritten 28 March 2023
- It was wonderful family tour to Goa. The weather there was to my side that made my stroll most memorable. Me and my family really got full value for my money and like to be there back again very soon.Written 5 June 2019
- We really enjoyed visiting the place. The mansion was in Chinchinim. The architectural beauty of the place is ineffible. It is even more impressive to know that the place was built so long ago.Written 30 August 2017
- Singbala Book House is located at the main square right beside the Tourist Information Office. This small store is in operation since 1936, and stocks international bestsellers, books on fiction, novels, travel guides, newspapers and much more. The inside of the shop is fairly small, perhaps no more than a few hundred square feet of densely packed shelves.Written 10 September 2023
