Velha Goa: A great place to be, the Old structures make you feel that one has come to Europe. The Old Goa Church is worth visiting. Velha Goa is a historical city in North Goa district.

Old Goa is like small Portugal.... Historical place to visit. There is also a museum to visit which contains photos of Portugal ruling people. Don't visit on Sundays because prayer will be going on so you may miss some certain parts of the church.
