The Convent and Church of St. Francis of Assisi
The Convent and Church of St. Francis of Assisi Goa Reviews
Another of Goa's many Christian Portuguese highlights! Nov 05, 2012
One of Goa's many architectural and Christian highlights, the Church of St. Assisi is one of the better preserved churches in town. Yon can read the history about the place here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Church_of_St._Francis_of_Assisi
What I particularly loved was how well a lot of the inside décor has been preserved. A lot of it reminded me of churches I've seen in Spain and Mexico. You don't need more than 30 minutes here, although it is quite the tourist trap. So those looking for a quiet prayer, brace yourselves for a lot of camera flashes, and the odd Russian voice requesting someone to click their snap!
