Church of Our Lady of the Rosary, Goa

Church of Our Lady of the Rosary

The Church of Our Lady of the Rosary is another one of Goa’s many places of worship. This church is designed a little differently, with rounded towers and windows which are placed near the roof, giving it the air of a fortress. The double storied portico of this church is plastered using lime mortar and constructed by using laterite. The façade of the church and the portico both have rounded towers flanking them on either side with crosses atop them. With three altars and two chapels, one of which is dedicated to Our Lady of the Rosary, this church also exhibits a great deal of Manueline style architecture with a clear Gothic influence visible in its rib-vault as well. This Basilica of Bom Jesus is located towards the east of this church. There is also a cenotaph made out of marble here which commemorates the wedding of Dona Catarina to Viceroy Garcia De Sa, as administered by St. Francis Xavier himself.
