Nest to Bom Jesu Basilica, this church dates from the 1700s. There are 7 Altars with beautiful carvings and architecture worth appreciating. A short walk away is the Beachfront where one can have a picnic

Across the road from the basilica, you'll find this cathedral. It's another example of Portuguese colonial architecture. It's not as ornate as the cathedrals in Brazil or Portugal, but it's nice to see a remnant of Portugal in India.

Parking area is bit far from Se Cathedral but should not be major concern since there is ample space for parking but do carry drinking water with you since there are hardly any refreshment joints in the complex
