“Magnificient church”
Reviewed 4 February 2013

Beautiful church with ornate altar pieces and to top it all the casket of St Francis Xavier. Together with the Se Cathedral next door well worth a visit.

“Faith and history”
Reviewed 2 February 2013

We had a good guide. This place has a rich history. Interesting to learn of the lesser know facts of Portuguese presence in Asia.

“Grand...!!”
Reviewed 28 January 2013

Its a huge church with great history and awesome gold plated carving on wood. It shows many Portugal as well as Greek Architectural styles. The painting exhibition was tremendous. A good place to visit. It gives the feeling of holiness and piousness.
