Church of Our Lady of Miracles

Also called Milagres Church

Church of Our Lady of Miracles is located about 2 km east of the main Mapusa market. It was constructed in 1594. Commonly known as Milagres Church, it was originally dedicated Our Lady of Miracles. The church feast falls on the Monday following the third week of Easter and it is a very important festival for both Hindus and Christians.

The church was almost destroyed in a fire set off by the retreating Portuguese forces in 1961 and was renovated soon after.
