Awesome, get the feel of the era gone by, ruled by the Portuguese,beautifully maintained houses, you must visit the Fundasao de orient, the entire stretch to be done on foot, do visit the Saint Sebastian Chapel, and if you dont mind the climb visit the scenic Maruti temple.

This is a historic part of the city that is quiet and peaceful dotted with boutiques and galleries and old Portuguese and Goan homes and churches . A very pleasant place to stay in the center of the city in proximity to places of interest.

Walk in here and lose yourself to the colours, beauty, heritage and lose track of time as well! There are little restaurants/cafes and hotels in here as well. Perfect place to photo-walk.

With its beautifully coloured houses, European style beer cafes, art galleries that sell Mario Miranda prints on tiles; Fontainhas is a must for passionate travellers. We stayed here two days and walked and walked, looking at the pretty houses, reading beautifully painted ceramic name plaques and listening to the music seeping put of homes and hotels. Beautiful memories!!

Goa has always been popular for having lovely beaches but there something more to it.Goa boast's of a rich culture of its own and I think as a traveler you really haven't experienced the real Goa of you haven't been to Panjim and especially Fountainhas. Go and take a stroll through the small lane, old Portuguese houses, beautiful architecture and... More

This place is a mini Pondicherry. It has quaint little cafes and excellent facades. The colors set this place apart from the rest of Goa. A very interesting urban intervention. Definitely worth a visit !!
