Title: Beyond Old Popular Goa Churches

Beyond the Popular Old Goa Churches

  • Goa looks best during the monsoon. The changing
    skyscape is either the clear azure sky after a
    heavy downpour or the dark clouds looming large
    over the rough sea that stretches beyond the
    horizon.
  • You can simply sit and enjoy the silhouetted
    landscape against the coconut groves before the
    rain without doing anything.
  • Or better still get wet in the rain and explore
    the places. Fortunately, during my recent trip,
    the rain gods allowed us to just have fun sans
    the rain.

  • Having seen the popular Old Goa churches before,
    this time we wanted to explore some of the
    offbeat churches that are beautiful but does not
    attract too many tourists.
  • With a little guidance from the hotel reception,
    we visited some of the most beautiful churches
    that took my breath away.

4
Mae De Deus Church
  • This 141-year-old church in Saligao is about 3 km
    from Calangute and 5 km from Candolim in North
    Goa.

5
  • The façade of the Gothic architectural structure
    rises regally against a palm-fringed backdrop.
  • A lush green paddy field on the other side of
    the road, right in front of the church, makes it
    a picture-perfect setting.
  • The interiors have a detailed alter all painted
    in golden colour with the beautiful wooden statue
    of Mae De Deus.
  • It has a huge lawn with benches to sit on. Mae De
    Deus Church is definitely a must-include list in
    your itinerary.

6
St.Alex Church
  • This church sits immaculately pretty by a
    roadside in Calangute. One of the oldest churches
    of Goa, the present structure is about 273 years
    old.

7
  •  It was built by the villagers. The imposing
    structure looks best at night when it is
    illuminated.
  • You can spend some peaceful time here if you are
    staying somewhere close to Calangute.

8
St.Lawrence Church
  • On the way to Aguada Fort, you can stop by at
    this tiny yet beautiful St Lawrence Church that
    lies atop a hill. Built in 1643, it has a huge
    courtyard that overlooks the sea..

9
  • The pillars of the church have inscriptions of
    the life and martyrdom of St Lawrence. Spend some
    time here and enjoy the tranquility

10
St.Hyacinthi Church
  • San Jacinto Island lies on the way to the Dabolim
    Airport. The first thing you will notice from
    afar is the façade of the St Hyacinthi Church.
  • There is a beautiful bridge that connects you to
    the island. With a promenade in front of the
    church overlooking the river, where fishing boats
    are moored on the shore, you can take a stroll or
    just sit and enjoy the view as well as the
    serenity.

11
  •  It is said that the church has an underground
    passageway leading to Siridao, the other side of
    the river.
  • I visited this place twice while I was there as I
    was completely in love with it. It is a
    must-visit church, especially on its feast day,
    which is celebrated on the last Sunday of
    September.

12
  • En route to Saligao, we lost our way but
    discovered this beautiful chapel by the lake.
    This chance discovery was the best of the lot for
    me.
  • For nature aficionados and those interested in
    photography, I would definitely recommend this
    place, which lies somewhere on the Saligao-Bardez
    route.

13
  • Goa has many such places that are not filled with
    tourists. If you love exploring those not so
    crowded places, make sure to visit these offbeat
    churches.
  • The landscapes, as well as the magnificent
    structures are definitely worth visiting. To book
