Old Goa was he site of the Portuguese capital until the mid 18th century. Today is it a magnificent complex of churches, monasteries, and cathedrals that cover a 1.5... More

Quite a lot of religious buildings to explore in Old Goa. Just a half hour bus ride from panjim. A day is plenty of time to explore. Be sure to make it up the hill near the museum for some incredible ruins.

The place is unique. You have lots of churches and other buildings, museums. You can find a completely different atmosphere in old goa compared to a place like Panaji, for example. The structures are majestic and have hundreds of years of history. If you can walk, that's great. If not, you can just drive around all the small lanes of... More
