Se Cathedral Church

Se Cathedral Church is in Old Goa. This is the most ancient and most celebrated religious building in Goa. This is considered to be the largest in Asia. The Cathedral is dedicated to St. Catherine of Alexandria. Hence it is also known as St. Catherine's' Cathedral. This was built by the Portuguese in the 16th century.

The church is approximately 250 ft in length and 181 ft in breath. The frontispiece stands at a height of 115 ft. There were two towers, on either side of the facade. The southern side tower is plummeted in 1776. The exterior of the Cathedral is famous for its plain style, which is typical of the Tuscan institution. The fallen bell tower was never rebuilt and has given the building an exceptionally charming look.
