Fontainhas is the most beautiful place in goa. The vibrant colors of the buildings are a treat to the travellers. Must visit for good portrait photographs.

The feel of Portugal is here. Very nicely done up places and some very quaint shops like Velha Goa are to be found here. Its an experience one should not miss.Just walking around is fun.

This is the old part of Panaji that has been conserved. Something like the Old Lisboa in Portugal. Old houses and mansions almost touching one another, with narrow roads.

My school is located in this place. This is a historical neighbourhood of Panaji with nice Portuguese style houses, narrow lanes and quiet locations. The best way to see this is by walking. Step in to the chapel and click photos of great architecture.
