The Royal Chapel Of St. Anthony

The Royal Chapel Of St. Anthony

The Royal Chapel Of St. Anthony, The Royal Chapel Of St. Anthony historical, The Royal Chapel Of St. Anthony travel
Location : Old Goa, Panjim, Goa
Built In : 17th Century AD

To the west of the tower of St. Augustine is the Royal Chapel dedicated to St. Anthony, the national saint of Portugal and held in grand respect by the Portuguese. It was built in the beginning of the 17th century.

In 1835 the chapel was closed but opened again in 1894 when it was also renovated. It was inaugurated again in 1961 after complete restoration done by the Portuguese Government.

This tiny chapel is semicircular in figure and has an unusually styled facade, not based on any one style. It faces east and the belfries give it a fortress-like appearance. The semi-circular arched doorway is flaked with twisted pilasters and the shutter bears the Augustinian icon of the pelican feeding its young. The clerestory windows light up the interior of the church, which is exquisitely finished and richly ornamented.
