Good architecture and it's an old churh from portughese era. It's easily accessible from Main road. Good to visit as part of south goa trip.

Bom Jesus cathedral
Feb 2020 • Friends
Apart from the interesting history, the cathedral is about the only tourist stop worth visiting in Old Goa. We paid 5 rupees to have a look at surrealistic art and some photography. I wish there were captions to the paintings as well as some explanation. It was crowded with many school children going there on a picnic. Entrance to the cathedral is free.

Disappointing
Jan 2020
We travelled for over an hour to see this and quite frankly thought it a complete waste of money. Beware the guides who rip you off for a 10 minute fly by.

Bom Jesus Church Nachinola
Feb 2019
The church chapel is pretty big and it can accommodate more than 500 people for the mass. The interiors are really well architecture by the Portuguese who built this church.

A Must see place in Goa!
Oct 2019
I can safely say that our trip to Goa would have been incomplete without a visit to the Basilica of Bom Jesus and the tomb of St. Francis - it was wonderful to experience the peace and upliftment that we experienced during our visit as well as learning about the history of Goa!

A must visit in Goa..
Sep 2019
No trip to Goa is complete without visiting the "Basilica of the Bom Jesus" or "St. Xavier's Church". The Church looks beautiful from the outside always, and has managed to stay peaceful and quiet in the Church. Doing a guide helps with some historical facts. Its a 10 mins tour inside, Guide is useful, though not mandatory. The tomb of St Xavier can be seen in the church. It is brought down every 10 years, with the next one being in 2024.

Must visit place in old goa

It's really very nice and very great historic place. We hire a guide and he told us too much about the history of this tomb. Must visit place if you are in Goa.

Timings to visit
May 2019
Best time to visit is between 3 pm to 5 pm as in the morning it's cowded with tourist. Restaurants around the area are not up to the mark and very expnsive.

Great to see the place where this famous man served in real life. You get to know all the important information on notice boards inside and outside. Decorations inside are beautiful and well maintained. It is also unusual to see the body of this saint from a distance! A must see!
