Saint Augustine Convent Church,Goa

The Augustinians had in India its highest point during the time of D. Aleixo de Meneses, who belonged to this order. The great buildings that remain, in whole or in part, in the city of Goa are of his time. What remains today of the church of the Convent of St. Augustine is an impressive and vast ruin, but through it can be perceived the grandeur that had the monastic complex and the exceptional dimensions of its formidable church of the invocation of Our Lady of Grace. The foundation of this house dates back to the year 1572, when 12 religious leaders under the direction of Friar Antonio da Paixao raised the walls of the first monastery. The construction of the church was completed in 1602 AD. We also have information that the walls were partially covered with tiles, whose brands are indeed clearly visible in many parts of the ruins, having been utilized for some other buildings, and can be seen in the front of the altar of the sacristy of Casa Professa do Bom Jesus. The Convent of St. Augustine also had a common area with large bedrooms, dining room, guest house, infirmary, etc., completing this multi-storey residential area with four chapels: the provincial, to the priors, that of Our Lady of the Rosary and that of Our Lady of the Assumption.
