Church and Monastery of St Augustine : Goa Directory

 

Most Photographed Monument Of Goa

Church and Monastery of St Augustine

Church and Monastery of St Augustine are the ruins of the 17th century Augustinian monastery. These are one of the most photographed monuments of Goa. They has been published in several travel magazines and post cards from time to time.

The ruins of the Church of St Augustine are located close to the Holy Hill in Old Goa. Today you can find here a 46-meter-high (153 feet) tower that once served as a bell tower, an important part of the church. The once picture perfect church was built by a group of 12 Augustan friars in 1572. The lofty tower that remains today is one of the four towers of St. Augustine Church that once stood on the site. The church had eight richly embellished chapels, four altars and a convent with numerous cells attached to it.

But today the central part of the Church and Monastery of St Augustine lies naked, where the locals gather in the evening for some fresh air and gossips. So, when you are in Goa stroll around the area, take photographs of the magnificent ruins and enjoy a panoramic view over Old Goa.
