One of the biggest and iconic church architecture in Goa. You need to walk a lot to reach this place as vehicles are not allowed till entrance. Not much of waiting time in queue for entry... more »
This is a ‘ Must See ‘ iconic landmark of GOA. It really highlights the Portuguese Christian influence on my beloved homeland of GOA. Highly recommended. - Milton Rodrigues, President of GOANS... more »
The Se Cathedral church is one of the greatest churches built in Goa. When attending mass inside, it gives you the feeling of being inside an old European church. It's magnificence is only comparable to that of the great Roman churches. When there are no masses, the church is open for tourists and visitors. It feels very peaceful to simply sit on the pew and pray or meditate.
It's tooooo huge. You must have proper dressing to get into. You can relax and sit outside. In one word "awesome!!"
