A unique old-world charm, the Santa Cruz Basilica is one of the eight basilicas in India that makes an indelible impression on visitors. This 500 years old Church has an eventful past going back to the arrival of the Portuguese in 1500. The Basilica has magnificent Indo-European and Gothic architecture and the grandeur in the use of colours. It has two bright lofty spires. The indelible charm of the monument owes a lot to its pastel-coloured interior, adorned with paintings of Italian painter Brother Antonio Moscheni and his disciple De Gama of Bangalore.
