The Church of St. Cajetan

Just a stone’s throw away from the Se Cathedral on the opposite side of the road is a beautiful structure made of laterite blocks known as the St. Cajetan church. The major attraction of the church is its beautiful architecture with two huge towers on both sides and a number of niches which house the attractive statues of the apostles.

The main structure is an impeccable example of the Greek architectural style with its beautiful facades and four giant piers. The top is adorned with an artistically crafted dome. Other than the main altar, there are six other such structures built in Baroque style. Stunning paintings and other works of art decorate the insides of the building.

A reservoir or tank beneath the structure is believed to be the relic of a Hindu temple that once stood here. Other, however, are of the opinion that the tank is part of the architectural plan that lends the structure more stability.

Location of Church of St. Cajetan
The St. Cajetan Church is located in Old Goa beyond the Rua Direita. The Se Cathedral Church is located in the opposite direction just across the road. The ruins of the Viceregal Palace lay at a short distance from the church. The church can be easily accessed from Goa’s capital Panaji, which is also the nearest major city.
