Church of St. Cajetan
 

The church of St.Cajetan in Old Goa, is located about 1/2 kms to the north east of the Se Cathedral. Built in 1661 by the Italian friars of the Theatine order, it is  said to have been modeled on the original design of St. Peter's Basilica in Rome. The church is dedicated to Our Lady of Divine Providence, but was named after St. Cajetan, founder of the Theatine order and a contemporary of St Francis Xavier. The entire church is built of laterite blocks and plastered with lime. It has two towers on either side to serve as belfry. Besides the main altar there are six altars, three on each side of the church.
