  • It's a beautiful church and is open for worshipping so tourists are not allowed while prayers are going on inside, although you can walk around and click pictures of outside of the church. Would recommend not to visit on Sundays if you're a tourist. No parking fee or entry fee is applicable, and there is ample space around the church where you can relax and walk around.
  • Se Cathedral church is also known as Santa Catarina. Which is present near to Basilica of Bom Jesus church. You can enjoy the architecture of this church. Not much waiting time in queue for entry. Photography is not permitted inside, outside you may click. Big surrounding area around the church. Very old and beautiful building well maintained. Good place for photography lovers. Inside is beautiful, with high ceilings and marvelous workmanship. Outside this place is a lot many local restaurants and stalls selling jewelry & souvenirs, but don't forget to bargain hard. Avoid your visit during bright sun as it becomes very hot. No dress code at this place. Must visit place in Goa.
