Beautiful church. In the main very well maintained though some of the big paintings are peeling a bit. I'm just not clear why the Portuguese needed four other churches within a stone's throw of Se Cathedral, of which this is 200 yards away and the furthest!

This is the fist church that you get as you walk from the Viceroy's arch in Old Goa. This is easily the most beautiful and ornate of Velha Goa's churches, but one that most people don't visit, since its a little off the beaten track. The church is well preserved and very beautiful. It has a 'wishing well' at the... More

We visited enroute to South Goa, Old Goa is a beautiful insight into the past before disease forced out the population who left for pastures new. Beautiful churches with history by the bucket load.

The church is modeled on the original design of St. Peter’s church in Rome. Architecturally Corinthian in style, the altars are in Baroque style. The church was built by Italian friars of the order of Theatines who were sent by Pope Urban III to preach Christianity in Golconda.

The Church of St. Cajetan or the Church of Divine Providence is part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site in India - "Churches and Convents of Goa". The facade tries to replicate the facade of Carlo Maderno to St. Peter's Basilica in Rome. It is a site of religious, cultural and historical significance. Highly recommended.
