Ruins of St. Paul's Church

The relics of the St. Pauls Church and college lies on the road from Old Goa to Ponda just a short distance from the Gandhi Circle. Constructed in 1543, the church of St. Paul was started as an institution of the Holy Faith for training young converts. The college was the first house of the Jesuit Order in Goa. The church and college which were in a devastated state was fully demolished by the Government in 1829. What remains here is only the archway of the facade of the church. There were some mortal remains of revered St. Francis Xavier which was later taken to Basilica of Bom Jesus.
