About
Unlike other areas of Panaji, the Campal heritage area is unique in its nature and characteristics. The street pattern consists of a grid iron pattern and only residential houses fully self sufficient in their needs and demands. Every house is different in its character, accessible with well tarred roads, parking space and compound is housed with ornamental railings carved in stones, and a distinct construction technology used to construct these houses. Basically, a formal layout with a garden (Jardin de Francisco Luis Gomes) facing the river front as focal point. Campal lies along river Mandovi and predominantly a residential area, occupied by higher economic group of population. The area is serene and tranquil away from the main hub of activity.

Experience the other side of Goa!
Aug 2021 • Solo
I did the walk with Lata - my guide for the walk! She is such a lovely person! She made the walk very interesting by sharing both history and anecdotes around every stop! Favorite part was the live musical performance by this very enthusiastic old man who sang in 4 different languages! I happen to see a very different side Goa this time! All thanks to Make it Happen team! Thanks for the experience Murli and Lata! 😊

Campal walk was my 2nd adventure with make it happen and was a truly mesmerizing one. Amreen,my rockstar guide is a wonderful soul.She showed me around some hidden gems and her knowledge and sweet approach will make you feel special. I saw Goa with a different approach apart from it is known for. My favourite part of the trip was an impromptu jam session with well known basa nova latin folk singer Maxie Miranda singing 'Imagine' in a heritage stage where famous singers showcased their talent. This kind of personal experience you kinda hope for when you travel.Kudos to Murli nd his team 🤘🏼

Walking through the cool shade of the rain trees, being serenaded by a musician, and having kokam at a heritage hotel. All this while being taken through the history of the place by Amreen. Absolute must do :)

Great historical tour
This was a lovely tour of a historic heritage area in Panjim. Led by a local (Lata), she gave a wonderful rich history lesson. We were also able to see inside one of the beautiful renovated homes and had a chance to listen to a wonderful local musician.

This was definitely well worth it, especially if you love history.

Fun Evening!
Sep 2020
What I loved the most about the Campal walk was the colors on the street. Vibrant, happy and wonderful!! Again, I had no idea Campal even existed and had so much history. We went for it not knowing what to expect and were pleasantly surprised as usual. We started our walk from Kala Academy and went on to explore the inside lanes full of beautiful and old houses and trees. Ameez was so kind and patient with us because we clicked a gazillion pictures :-D. I loved the information about the canals and the old residents of Campal. We even saw Wendell Rodricks's house!! But my most fav spot was the one behind the park near Kala Academy. It was our last stop and from there we saw the most amazing sunset. Here I also discovered that there was another fort I had never even heard of!! The Reis Magos fort. Campal had everything, history, architecture, music and lots of smiles :-) The walk just reiterated my thoughts about how much Goa has to offer and how the world does not know about it. I wish to do more such walks with you @MakeItHappen not just for the sake of travelling but to have great experiences and carry stories with me to tell my friends and family back here in Bangalore. See you in November! ;-)

Soak in Panjim the right way
Sep 2020
Murali showed us around in this really beautiful part of town. I had visited beaches, cliffs, quarries, rivers, waterfalls, backwaters in Goa but never residential areas with a lot of landmarks.

The walk also had titbits which were about life in Goa beyond the historical trivia. Musicians also join this walk and soothe you with goan melodies. It was wonderful!

A wonderful afternoon in Panjim
Sep 2020 • Solo
I had no idea what to expect when I signed up for the heritage walk. Starting at the Kala academy in Goa, we walked around for a good two hours discovering parts of Panjim that I had perhaps driven past numerous times but never noticed before. The beauty of the walk was that it highlighted how the history of Goa is seamlessly now woven into modern life. I learnt why Goa has colourful houses, how the Portuguese were actually first defeated before they took over and why the trees are planted the way they are ! Add to this additional entertainment on the guitar with old songs, both Goan and Portuguese , a wonderful glass of kokum and exploring gorgeous by lanes - it is definitely something I'd not only recommend, but I will be back to try the other experiences too!
