"Old Goa - Church of Our Lady of the Mount" Our Lady of the Mount Church - Old Goa Tip by Willettsworld


This church is located about 2km to the east of the main group of churches in Old Goa on the top of a small hill. This is reputedly where Yussuf Adil Shah placed his artillery during the assault to recapture the city in May 1510. This church was built shortly after the attempted attack in 1519. The views from here over the churches of Old Goa in amongst the tropical trees and the views over the Mandovi River (see next couple of tips) are excellent. It's best to come here in the morning so that the sun shines towards the west.

Directions: About 2km to the east of the Se Cathedral
