A popular attraction worth visiting near Calangute is the Saint Alex Church with its two towers and a magnificent dome gracing the facade. The inside of the church with its ornate altars is a superb example of the line and beauty of Goa’s architectural style. In 1996, Calangute celebrated the fourth centenary of this parish church. The Kerkar Art Complex is a popular centre for exhibitions of arts and crafts by local artistes. On Thursdays and Fridays, connoisseurs of Indian classical music and dance can enjoy some of the many concerts on offer.
