Church of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception

#13 of 37 things to do in Goa

Standing tall in the capital city of Goa, lying on a hilltop is the beautiful Church of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception. Close to the Mandovi Bridge, this church initially used to be a chapel in 1541 and the larger church building came up only in 1619. Although there have been many revisions and improvements carried out the original building remains the same.The interior of the church is simple having a couple of altars. The main altar is dedicated to Mary Immaculate and on the left hand side is Jesus crucified and on the the right is Our Lady of the Rosary. Beautiful statues of St. Paul and St. Peter are seen beside the altars. The St. Xavier's Chapel is another attraction of the church.The great bell at the Church of Mary Immaculate Conception is considered the second largest church bell in Goa after the Golden Bell in Se Cathedral in Old Goa. The feast of the Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception Church is celebrated on 8th December every year and the church is decorated with lights and is in high spirits. This is yet another spot in Goa one should not miss visiting.
