I been twice to Goa and this is the first place I always visited. beautifully built by the Britishers and it also the body of the priest which has been stored from the last 500 years. BEWARE of the beggers around there. Good place to bargain and get ornaments and clothes. Don't miss the coconut water around the church.

This place has lovely old architecture which has been left behind by the Portuguese. Lots of shops both old and new make it interesting to walk around and take it the atmosphere.

A trip down what must have been when the portugese wrested this land from the natives. The value addition through the centuries is worth a trip to this historic area

Not brilliant. but worth a visit whilst in Goa, suggest you combine it with a spice farm trip so as not to waste time on a single trip here

just the location, the setting takes you on an all together spiritual journey. The old goa church talks distinctively of the Portuguese architecture. great effort by the Goa government to cherish their cultural heritage.

Nothing to see but the churches of the bygone era. Wish we could find some old architecture. If you would like to know goan culture, spend time near the concept church on panjim, visit fontainhas and the mhamai khamat house.
