Beautiful and well maintained cathedral. Very tourist friendly and makes sure everyone is dressed modestly before entering which is much appreciated. Everything inside including beautiful paintings are well preserved. It holds the miraculous cross which is definitely worth a visit to this cathedral.

Located in nice gardens, this church is basically opposite the Basilica of Bom Jesus, so could easily be visited on the same visit.

The oldest and the most celebrated religious buildings in Goa. It is the cathedral of the Latin Rite Roman Catholic Archdiocese located in Old Goa. Its tower houses a large bell known as the "Golden Bell" because of its rich tone.

Just situated in front of the Basilica of Bom Jesus this building is also included in the world heritage sites of UNESCO. Famous museum and church are most attractive part of this site.

Parking area is bit far from Se Cathedral but should not be major concern since there is ample space for parking but do carry drinking water with you since there are hardly any refreshment joints in the complex
