about pilar seminary

It's one of the surviving two seminaries out of the four built by the Portuguese. Though it looks run of the mill from a distance, once inside you'll be in for a surprise with the posh new chapel.

A one room museum at the Once here, you can get a bird's eye-view of St Andrew Church of Goa Velha down below, while the whispers that echo from the tree leaves make it an ethereal experience.
