Churches of Goa

 

Old Goa

Most of the churches in Goa were built during the time of Portuguese rule, and many of them in Old Goa, which is today a World Heritage site. Goan churches are renowned for their interesting architecture which is a blend of two or more styles and influences.

 

Portuguese Houses of Goa

During Portuguese rule there was a period of 'inquisition" in which most of the Hindu temples were destroyed and churches were built in their place, often on the original site of the temple. The church plays an important role in Catholic Goa's social, cultural and religious life.

Today the churches are all part of the Archdiocese of Goa. The oldest church in Goa is the Church of Our Lady of Rosary on Monte Santo in Old Goa. The style of church at the time that this church was built is known as Manueline after King Emmanuel of Portugal. The churches that were built in the period between 1510 and 1550 are known as the churches of the early period.

Church Houses in Goa

A prime example of a church from this period is the Church of Our Lady of Rosary. The period between 1550 and 1660 is known as the Baroque period, and the best examples of churches from this period are the Basilica of Bom Jesus, the Se Cathedral, the Chirch of St Cajetan and the Augustine Church of Our Lady of Grace, which is now in ruins. The other architectural periods are the Rococo period from 1760 to 1899 and the Modern period, from 1900 to current times.

The following is a list of must-see churches in Goa
• Church of Our Lady of the Rosary
• Church of St. Francis of Assisi
• The Se Cathedral
• Basilica of Bom Jesus
• St. Cajetan Church
• Church of Our Lady of Immaculate Conception

Agonda vs. Palolem Beach

or What is the best beach in south Goa

If it happens and you arrive to South Goa, there is one character trait of yours that it is important to determine: Are you a Palolem beach person, or an Agonda beach kinda guy (or gal)?

The test is a simple one. You just have to ask yourself – do you feel more comfortable in a secluded, out of the way, community, or are you a person of the big - rushing, keep on changing, always busy – city.

Palolem Beach Party or Yoga in Agonda

Agonda Beach huts or Agonda Beach Resorts

If you chose the first option as the one that suits you better, you surely are an Agonda beach person.

Agonda Beach

Agonda beach Goa used to be a getaway beach from the center of happening – Palolem beach and its area. There were almost no beach huts in Agonda, but merely very few small guesthouses, that were mostly occupied by loners, that were seeking to enjoy the beautiful beaches of south Goa, but were also looking for some peace and quiet, that were not always so easy to find on Palolem beach.

Agonda Restaurants

Eating used to be simple – mainly local 'dhaba's, with south Goan food, and maybe one or two restaurants that their menus answered, somehow, to the definition of continental food.
Nowadays, Agonda beach is transformed quite dramatically. But in a good way. The season on Agonda beach is still short - when compared to what happens in Palolem - and it starts sometimes in mid November, and lasts only until beginning of April. The beach is still the same magnificent beach, very wide and long stretch, where you can always find many adorable spots, where the feeling is that the beach belongs only to you. So what has changed? The most obvious change are the beach huts that all of a sudden started appearing, without interfering with the general view of the beach. More beach huts means more people, but Agonda is actually large enough to give everyone the sense of semi-solitude they are looking for. Another interesting change is the food. Together with the beach huts (and other types of guesthouses), the food and restaurant scene also grew quite remarkably. There are very good restaurants that serve very good continental and other genres of food, beside the local south Goan one. Now, all of those loners, can also enjoy a good satisfying meal, without having to go all the way to Palolem.

Goa Resorts in Agonda Beach

The main road in Agonda has become a cheerful road planted with shops on both sides - not as big and loaded as in Palolem, but intimate and calm.

To conclude, Agonda now has it all – tranquility, solitude and the charm of a fishermen village, together with amenities and the ability to satisfy those simple everyday needs.
