about nossa senhora de penha de franca church

Nossa Senhora da Penha de Franca Church, Goa was a Spanish saint, held in very high regard by seafarers, who had managed to survive the tough voyage to India. It is said that once sailors faced an especially demanding voyage and were on the brink of death. They survived only because of divine help from the saint and from then onwards Nossa Senhora da Penha de Franca became a kind of patron saint for sailors. 

The Nossa Senhora de Penha de Franca Church was built in 1626 AD and the entire cost of construction was managed by a widow named Ana de Azavedo. She was a Franciscan Tertiary. However, the structure collapsed in 1651 AD and was again built in 1655 AD. It was finally awarded the status of a national monument in 1932. With a high-vaulted ceiling and simple but beautifully done up interiors, the church makes for a captivating sight.
