The church of St. John the Baptist was originally built near the shore and has been shifted to its present location on top of a hill known as Monte Benaulim in the year 1956. The church has one of the best constructed and most beautiful altars with a whitewash that charms everyone to visit the place once. The church is well known for the annual feast Sao Joao too. Celebrated on June 24th, Sao Joao is one festival which is as entertaining and pompous as the Carnival. It starts off as a Mass held at the church and then, the youth of Goa do something amazing; get drunk and jump into wells and streams, while singing 'Viva San Joao'.
