Church of Our Lady of the Rosary is one of the oldest churches of Goa. It lies close to the Basilica of Dom Jesus, on the western side of the Holy Hill in Old Goa.

The Church of Our Lady of the Rosary is suppose to be built by Alfonso de Albuquerque as a sign of his victory over the king of Bijapur in 1510. It was in this historic church that St. Francis Xavier used to preach catechism every evening.

The church is an excellent example of the "Manueline" style of architecture. This style is a confluence of Gothic and Renaissance architecture and is exclusive to Portugal of that time. The church is called as Church of Our Lady of the Rosary since the main altar here bears the image of Nossa Senhora de Rozario or Our Lady of the Rosary. The entire church is very impressive and peaceful.
