Church of St. Anne
 

Church of St. Anne is located on the banks of Siridao River in the tiny village of Talaulim (Santana), near Old Goa. The church dedicated to Mother Mary is an excellent masterpiece of Indian baroque architecture with a touch of European flavor. Though the construction was started in 1577 by Monsignor Francisco de Rego, it was completed by  Rev. Fr. Antonio Francisco da Cunha in 1695. In 1931, the church was declared a National monument. The festivity of St Anne known as Touceachem Fest (Cucumber Feast) that falls on July 26 is celebrated through out Goa with great enthusiasm.
