Historic tower of St Lawrence Church in Sinquerim to be repaired

The beautiful tower of the heritage St Lawrence Church in Sinquerim will be repaired in approximately 15 days. Last year, on October 3, there was a storm and lightning hit the tower which made it collapse.

This also resulted in roof damage. Debris had fallen inside the church and damaged electronic fixtures. The roof and electric fixtures were repaired long back.

It is called ‘Sao Lourenco Igreja em Sinquerim’. It was built in 1630, during the Portuguese era. One can get a beautiful view of the Mandovi River here. Fort Aguada is nearby as well. They celebrate a yearly feast on August 10.
