One of the biggest tourist attractions of Mangalore city is the Our Lady of Miracles Church, which is better known as Milagres Church. The church was built by a priest, named Bishop Thomas de Castro, in the year of 1680. According to a few people’s belief, the soldiers of Tipu Sultan destroyed some parts of this Church and later on, used its stones to construct the Idgah on the Lighthouse Hill.
Due to the spectacular architecture, Milagres Church is a strong contender for the most beautiful artistic house of the city of Mangalore. A super altar, showcasing a French painting depicting St Monica and St Augustine, is a very rare laurel of art and is a must visit.
