It has an average elevation of 33m.HistoryA copper-plate inscription was issued by King Viramarmadeva of the Kadamba dynasty in 1049 CE concerning a grant of a piece of land called 'Tudukapura' in 'Kudtarika agrahara' of 'Chhat sathi desha'. This inscription suggests that 'Kudatari' or modern 'Curtorim' was known as 'Kudatarika' then. 'Chhat sathi' refers to modern Salcete, known as 'Sashti' in the local Konkani language. It had an 'Agrahara', which means an education centre or a university in the modern sense and was started most probably by the said monarch Viramarmadeva or by 'Sasthadeva II' or 'Guhalladeva II' of Goa Kadamba dynasty.ReligionCurtorim has a predominantly Catholic Christian population. The Church of St Alex is the main feature of the village. It is one of the oldest churches in Goa. It was built in 1597 CE amidst a scenic natural backdrop of a lake 'Angoddi Tollem' across the woods on the site of an ancient Hindu temple dedicated to the deity Ravalnath (a form of Lord Shiva). The remains of the ancient temple of Ravalnath are still visible today. The church of St Alex was first a chapel church; in 1808 CE it was converted to a church. This church once housed the 'Kudtari/Kundodari' Mahamaya temple deities, now currently located at 'Ghudo Avadem'.
