zoomable

The church of Carmelites is located on the hill to the soth east of the Church of St. Cajetan in Panaji, capital city of Goa. The church acquires the the prominent position on the top of the hill close to the Chapel of Our Lady of the Mount in Old goa. The church of Carmelites was built in the year 1621 AD. Constructed in medieval design, the church of Carmelites fell into disuse soon after Carmelites were expelled from Goa in 1707 because they refused to obey the Oath of Allegiance to the king. Now there is nothing left on the church ground except for the facade and a raised pavement which served as an altar. 

Though there’s nothing left to see at the land of Carmelites, one cannot ignore the immense historical significance attached to the marvel. The church reflects the rich history of goa during the time Portuguese ruled the place.

The church is not much maintained and is available only in ruins still it is one must place to visit in Goa. It can be easily accessed from all nearby cities. Visit to the Carmelite is recommended by traveling to the amazing locations in old goa.
