St. Alex Church, Calangute

4.4
Admire the striking white facade of St. Alex Church, where thousands of Christian devotees gather for prayer and communion. Built in 1741 by the village communities, the church was financed thanks to donations and the goodwill of locals. As you approach the compound, notice how the dome resembles that of St. Peter's Basilica in Rome. Examine the Indian-style "cupola falsa" inside, as well as the seven altars and the main sanctuary. Afterwards, head outside to the churchyard to see the Grotto of Our Lady. The museum nearby offers a detailed history of the church. Put St. Alex Church into our Goa route maker site to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Goa.

  • The place is very interesting and nice to visit.It is a clean place and goos maintenance.It is a nice time on the visit.  more »
  • The church is small, but very "cozy" and stands on the "island" of the road, all passing by it pay attention. At the time of my visit was closed for repairs, though the repairmen themselves for two weeks could not see.
