View from the front side of the Se Cathedral in Goa in India
A view from the front side of the Se Cathedral in Goa. The Se Cathedral is a centuries old structure, a heritage site. It was built by the Portuguese (who controlled Goa at that time) to celebrate their victory over the Muslim armies (this victory led to the capture of Goa). Since the victory happened on the day of St. Catherine’s feast, the Cathedral was named after her, the full name of the Cathedral being Sé Cathedral of Santa Catarina. The victory happened in 1510, with the construction of the Cathedral being started in the year 1552 and was finally consecrated in the year 1640. It is a lovely structure, drawing a number of tourists every year.
