St. Elizabeth\'s Church in Goa

The church of Ucassaim is dedicated to St. Elizabeth, Queen of Portugal also known as Santa Isabel de Portugal Church and is quite elegant in its architecture. The construction of the church was started by Franciscans in the year 1618 and got completed in 1628.But in 1708 a storm destroyed the church and was reconstructed in the same year.The feast of the patron is on July 4th but because of the monsoons it is celebrated in the month of February, along with the feast of St. Sebastian, Blessed Sacrament and Our Lady of Health, which results in the traditional sorpotel and sannams distributed all over the village amidst great fun and festive programmes like tiatrs and football matches.
