“Peacefull”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

We visit this church everytime we visit goa. It feels really good to be there.

We travel from north to old goa to reach the church and you will find a lot of old homes made in portuguese style which is a treat to watch. Plus the drive along the river is awesome.

For the first time we took a ferry to reach the Divar island which was really a good experince because we had seen that in the movies only.

A must visit place.

“Give me chills!”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

Historic.. Too bad I will not be able to be there for St. Xavier festival. The remains of St. Xavier and still open for the public, catholic or not. But it's on a very high podium.. If it's should've been lower, it's more nicer..

Reviewed 17 July 2014

The basilica is grand from the outside and totally engrossing once you step inside. Tomb of St Francis Xavier is well maintained.
