Church of Our Lady of Divine Providence Travel

The Rua Direita road holds the Church Our Lady of Divine Providence. Build by Italian friars in 1640, the church still stands tall and speaks volumes about the magnificent architecture. The Italian friars who constructed the church were missionaries at the Kingdom of Golconda. However since they were not permitted to work in Golconda, they decided settled to do so in Goa. The church is popularly called St. Cajetan, one of the main founders of the holy Order of Theatines.

The convent houses a functional theological college, while the Church, modeled as per Basilica of St. Peter's (Rome) is 121 feet long and 81 feet wide. Built from laterite stone and lime plastered external architecture of the church is in Corinthian style. One main altar and three separate altars have been artfully accommodated inside the church.
