St. Andrews Church

St. Andrew’s R.C. Church was founded by Jesuits in 1570. On 5th April of the same year, the first Mass was celebrated with great pomp.

Adil Shah’s soldiers destroyed the original building in1578.

Viceroy Ferrao Teles de Menezes ordered the priests throughout Goa to build beautiful Churches of stone and lime. The present Church building probably dates to 1594.

The church had a magnificent “facade” which was destroyed in the year 1950.

In September 2000 some antisocial elements detonated a bomb on the right side of the Church, but God saved his Temple of Love.
