I found the city wonderful, it has spacious roads, nice gardens, and I loved the architecture, finding similarities with the portuguese one of course. The churches are beautiful (I visited The San Francisco de Assis Church and The Bom Jesus Basilica), I was amazed by the altars (very opulent.. typical of the colonial times) and I wasn´t expecting to see the Casket of Saint Francis Xavier in the Basilica of Bom Jesus in Goa, it is the famous christian missionary who devoted much of his life to missions in Asia, after being appointed by King John III of Portugal. Being portuguese it was great to recognise some of the heritage. I only wish the historical sites were more well-maintained than I found them, most monuments I saw are continuously exposed to environmental conditions without any kind of restoration or protection. Overall, it was a great experience, I recommend everyone to visit this beautiful city.
