Church of St. Francis of Assisi
 

The Convent and Church of St Francis of Assisi is located to the west of Se Cathedral, Old Goa. The church which have been constructed in 1517-1521 AD, was demolished and rebuilt in 1661 retaining only the exquisitely carved old gate made of black stone. The architecture is a blend of the Tuscan style on the exterior and the mosaic-Corinthian style on the interior. The church displays decorative paintwork and woodcarving and the floor is inlaid with elaborately engraved tombstones depicting scenes from the life of St. Francis. The convent at the back of the church which has been started in 1517 by Franciscan friars was converted to an archaeological museum.
