The Gothic-Portuguese Se Cathedral on the religious beats tour from our ship has a Corinthian interior and was consecrated in 1640. The one tower that did not collapse contains the golden bell known for its melodic tone.

For the most part very well-kept without exceptional ostentation. Genuine point of Christian worship and peace.

Declared a heritage site, the cathedral is massive. So much so that you notice it from way far when coming from Panjim. It has a historic significance and the architecture is fascinating as well. And if nothing else, one could just relax and enjoy the tranquillity given that it's not a busy tourist day..
