Chapel of St. Jerome

On the top of the hillocks at Madel, the Chapel of St. Jerome is situated. This Chapel has been constructed on an elevated ground with its entrance towards the South.

It is a circular structure with a drum and dome over it.Tere is a pillared verandah, around this chapel. The tiled roof of this verandah is sloppy and is supported by square stone pillars. The wall of the chapel is of laterite and it is plastered with lime and cement. The outer diameter of this chapel is approximately 28.8 meters and its internal diameter is 5.75 meters. There is a high stone platform in the northern end of this chapel.

There are two small windows on the wall of this chapel. The superstructure of this chapel is topped by a small octagonal tower, which in turn is capped by another small dome.

It is commonly believed that here originally stood a church, a seminary and a convent, all located at the foot of the hill and believed to have been built during the 16th century AD. Today however, no structures remain. It appears that the chapel of St. Jerome is the only ancient chapel in Goa with a circular plan.
