Old Goa Heritage Walk

20 reviews
The Old Goa Heritage Walk revisits some of the most fascinating facts during Portuguese rule. When Old Goa was Goa’s former capital city, it was a thriving city even during prior to Portuguese times. It was the capital of the Bahmani Sultan Adil Shah empire. The Portuguese arrived here in 1510 under their commander Afonso de Albuquerque, and captured the city from Adil Shah, the ruler of the Bijapur Kingdom. They came to the East in search of trade and to eventually spread Christianity.<br><br>In our Old Goa Heritage Walk, explore the some of the most historically significant buildings. Old Goa is a World Heritage site housing some of most grandest and oldest churches in the region. Among these are the Basilica of Bom Jesus which houses the remains of St. Francis Xavier. The imposing Sé Cathedral, the Church of St Francis of Assisi, the Chapel of St Catherine and the domed church of St. Cajetan.

The Reis Magos Fort is located in North Goa area, it is a small beautiful and very well maintained fort, must visit although its a little walk from the main road . Reis Magos fort was originally a defence fortess and then later used as a jail till 1993 ... once can see the jail cells still , after which it started crumbling. then the fort was restored in 2008 with great efforts from famous artist Mario Miranda and the Govt of Goa, and fort is now converted into a cultural centre, besides being used a tourist attraction. We had real good fun and clicked a lot of pictures here It was really worth a while spending time here at Reis Magos Fort Must visit if you have some spare time ... you wont regret n kids will also enjoy n learn

After it's renovation, the Reis Magos fort is one of the monuments in Goa you shouldn't miss. If you are a history buff, this fort is a must visit. The views from atop the fort walls are breathtaking. It's probably the best view you will get of the city of Panjim. Please note that it is CLOSED IN MONDAYS

Fort Reis Magos, carefully renovated by Goa Govt, is clearly the Top Historical Attraction of Goa. Built centuries ago by Portuguese Rulers to guard the River Mandovi from entry by enemy ships, the Fort looks as good as new - neat, clean & well maintained. Numerous stairs lead up & down from the ramparts of the Fort. A large number of well-maintained Guns are positioned on the ramparts as of yore. An excellent exhibition of photographs showing every phase of History of Fort Reis Magos, from construction by Portuguese Rulers to Gandhiji’s Freedom Struggle during British period to War of Liberation in 1961. In the basement Gun Loops, another excellent exhibition of photos of life in Goa in different ages is neatly arranged. Entry fee of Rs.50 for Senior Citizens is well worth many times over. The sweeping views of the Mandovi River from the ramparts of Fort Reis Magos are an endless delight to behold. A visitor would need atleast 2 hours to do justice to all that Fort Reis Magos offers.
