Everybody loves Goa - Chapels, Churches, Cathedrals




the corridor window redone

Old Goa - declared the world heriage site, it has numerous chapels ,churches and cathedrals. Every one of it is unique and leaves you spell bound. You can spend an entire day marvelling the architecture and the history it holds. Would be ideal to visit it in the monsoons.

(above) Holy Spirit Church, Panaji. Located in the heart of the city this is the local's church where i found a schedule for a Portugese service too. Traffic flows right in front of it and you have benches placed on the divider overlooking the church where you can spend some time looking at it. It looks better when its lit in the nights.
