The St Catejan church is behind the St Francis Xavier Church near to the ferry point. It has very little crowd and the architecture is good.

I went to St. Cajetan's Church. The construction of the church began in 1655, and although it’s perhaps less interesting than the other churches, it’s still a beautiful building and the only domed church remaining in Goa. It is great place to go.
