Old Goa known for churches. If you are in Goa ,Old Goa is must to visit. churches are very old and really an architectural heritage. The artifact of St. Francis Xavier's is really priceless. Try to avoid to visit in noon.

Lots to see and over a wide area, try the government sponsored tour which takes you round the outlying sites, at 50p per head it's very good value.

If you are in Goa, old Goa and the Churches are a must visit. Goa is not only known for its beaches but also the architectural heritage of Old Goa. The relic of St. Francis Xavier's is worth a visit.

Enjoyed a walk around Old Goa but then I do like old churches and these were worth the trip. We were here the day before a big festival so everything was set up for the thousands of pilgrims who will take part.
