Saint Alex Church Calangute Reviews
Saint Alex Church Calangute - 15th century religious monument Feb 23, 2010
This church is dedicated to Saint Alex and located on the Calangute junction. Built in the 15th century, making it one amongst the oldest churches in Goa. This church is located in the Bardez Taluka and one amongst the 24 Parish Churches built during that time. It’s said that that this church was built on the Hindu shrine. The interiors are classy, with lot of murals and statues. Wooden carving painted in gold and bright colors. Most of the architecture is retained to its original and well maintained by the parish.
The church is open during liturgical service and photography is allowed after the service is over. You only get few minutes before the care taker starts shutting the doors.
