    Church of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception

    Make your way to the laid-back city of Panaji to visit another one of Goa's historic churches: The Church of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception.



    Why to visit this place

    The pristine white church, which dates back to the early 17th century, stands atop a zig-zagging staircase that resembles the tiers of a wedding cake. Its perfectly symmetrical Portuguese Baroque architecture is a sight to behold. At night, twinkle lights make the church look like something out of a fairy tale.




    Special Tip:

    Dec. 8 marks the Festival of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception, a major holiday at this church. Swing by to see it decked out in tons of colorful lights.
