Believed to be one of the first churches to be constructed in Goa, the Church of Our Lady of the Rosary is perched atop the Holy hill / Monte Santo while providing an enchanting view of the River Mandovi and Divar Island below. This is also believed to be the place where Alfonso de Albuquerque the Portuguese sea farer led his sailors to a grand victory in 1510.

The place is revered by many since it is believed that it was here that St. Francis Xavier was known to have taught catechism to the common public every evening after sounding a little bell. A fine example of "Manueline" architecture the interior of the church has five altars. The main altar at the church bears the image of Nossa Senhora de Rozario also known as Our Lady of the Rosary.
