We rented a bike from north Goa to ride to Bascilia of Bom Jesus. What we did not know was that ride would be so beautiful. Green palms, cool weather, beautiful Goa river by your side.. it has that calm & charm that you would want to soak yourself into nature and refresh your inner self.

This is a place worth driving around and just soaking in the architecture. Be aware there are lots of tourists and there is hardly any place where you are going to get a quiet spot. But if you can handle all of that - it is really worth seeing.

Besides the beaches, there are a few MUST VISIT attractions in Goa, and top-most on this list is Old Goa, with its great churches, its distinctive architectures, the memorable drive along the Mandovi river and the lovely Ye Olde Houses that dot the way. Do read up on it before you visit, to really enjoy the experience.....and get yourself updated... More

It is amazing to see the concentration of churches and other monuments in an area of a little over 1 square kilometer. If you like histroical sites, then this is definitely worth a visit. If you are the kind to walk around, park near the Se' Cathedral and then most of the other buildings are within walking distance.

Old Goa is a must do trip as part of an organised your only. It's great if your interested in archeological historic buildings churches and temples. It is predominantly the Catholic Churches you busy steeped in history and a mire modern temple. You will need to take something to cover your shoulders in the Catholic Church and something to tie...

A visit to Goa is definitely incomplete without visiting Old Goa. Old Goa is situated on the banks of the river Mandovi and is about 10/12 kilometres from Panjim and well connected by road
