    Saligao Church - Church of Mae de Deus

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This beautiful Gothic & modern place of worship is located at Saligao. The foundation stone was laid on in 1867 the upon completion the chapel was raised in 1873.

    The shrine of the Nossa Senhora Mai de deus ("the miraculous statue of Mae de Deus = Mother of God") was brought over from the ruins of the convent of Mae de Deus at Daugim, Old Goa.

    When we stopped at the church after a busy day of sight-seeing we were lucky enough to catch the end of a wedding ceremony taking place. (click on photo)

    You don't need more that 15-20 min to have a look in and around the church and to take-in the tranquil & lush surroundings amidst trees & nature.
    It's a nice place to finish a day of sight-seeing, sit in the grass and just breeeaaath... :-)
