The place was very charming. I came by motorbike and had only a short time to see a few of Old Goas charming places. Yet I could notice that time stood a little bit still. Liked it very much and at a restaurant next to the fort I had the longest paper dosa ever!

It was truly remarkable to see the grand architecture of the Portuguese hey-days as reflected in the grand churches that were constructed in Old Goa. Beautifully managed and maintained by the Archaeological Survey of India. Inside the Cathedrals of these beautiful Roman Catholic Churches, one can only imagine the dedication and skills of the artisans who were involved in the... More

This is basically a church thats just opposite another church. Looking at how beautifully this structure stands, you can marvel at God's wisdom and feel connected to God. Wonderful church that takes you back in time.

The whole of Old Goa is a wonderful place to visit, the history and heritage of the place is really well looked after. The Cathedral and other churches are spectacular. A must visit place is the old quayside on the river.

naji or Panjim is the capital city of Goa. It is situated at Old Goa. I have seen many capital cities in India. But Panjim is ahead of them when it comes to beauty and fascination. How it differs from several other state capitals is with its unique beautiful setting and calmness. Take a drive through the Bridges, you will... More

This is an absolute must see. It's just a 15 minute Rs10 bus ride away from Panaji and is totally worth the trip. The number and size of the churches is astounding and it's totally peaceful. It's amazing to think that this is in India! Forget where you are for a moment and you'd be forgiven for thinking you were... More
