The Chapel of Saint Catherine was originally built by Alphonso Albuquerque in the 16th century on the Saint Catherine’s day to mark his conquest over the city of Goa. Initially this was cathedral and was later upgraded to a chapel by Pope Paul III in the year 1534. The chapel was rebuilt over the remains of the earlier structure in 1552. The architecture of the chapel is in a Renaissance style, which has two towers, and these towers stand on either side of the main entrance. The walls have been plastered with limestone and laterite. There is a beautiful gilded altar, along with many artworks; many paintings have been put here, which depict the story of St Catherine of Alexandria. There is an art gallery here too.
