The Church of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception is one of the top tourist attractions in Panaji. The church is one of the oldest in Goa, it is in existence since 1541. It was then completely rebuilt in 1619. The interior of the church is relatively simple by the standards of the time although the backdrop to the main altar, dedicated to Mary Immaculate, is impressive enough. The church has a couple of altars dedicated to Our Lady of Rosary and Jesus. Beautiful marble statues of St. Paul and St. Peter are seen beside the altars. Panaji was the first port for all ships from Lisbon, hence the church was the first to greet the sailors. The feast of the Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception church is celebrated on 8th December every year. During the feast the church is elegantly decorated and a fair is setup in the church square, located right opposite to the church as visible in the 360 above.
