Church of Lady of the Rosary

Church of Lady of the Rosary

The Church of Lady of the Rosary is located right opposite the Basilica of Bom Jesus Church. It was built between 1544-1549, and is one of the most visited places in Goa. It is one of the oldest surviving catholic churches in Goa — a standing testimony of the early Portuguese conquests. The church was the brainchild of Alfonso de Albuquerque, who wanted to construct a religious structure right where he had defeated the Sultan of Bijapur, Adil Shah, in 1510.
