Church of St. Cajetan

#4 of 37 things to do in Goa

Stands gloriously in Old Goa, northeast of the Se Cathedral, this is without a doubt one of the most beautiful churches in Goa. The Church was originally dedicated to Our Lady of Divine Providence and it is now more commonly known as the Church of St. Cajetan, who was a peer of St. Francis Xavier and the founder of the Order of monks called the Theatines. Built in the Corinthian style of architecture it is said to have the same architecture as the St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome. The interior of this church also shows Baroque, Rococo and Goan influences. There is also a convent that houses the Pope Pius X institute for the Pastoral training of priests.

Timings :

The church is open seven days a week from 9.00 am to 7.00pm.
