The azure sky, swaying green coconut trees and the white plastering makes this church look true to its name. This imposing white coloured church which stands right in the middle of city is one of the prominent structures in Panjim. Situated at a distance of about 200 meters from the Mandovi river front, Our Lady of Immaculate Conception has been existent from the middle of 16th century. Well known for its double staircase, the church has three towers of which the middle one houses the bell. This is the most famous church in Panjim and is also one of the first to be built in Goa.
The main altar inside the church is built in renaissance style and is dedicated to Mary Immaculate. There are two more altars on the sides which has Crucified Jesus on one and Our Lady of Rosary on the other. The building also has a chapel dedicated to St. Francis Xavier.The church gets lit up in the evening and from what I have heard, it is a magnificent sight.
