Old Goa, Panjim

4.3
Experience the history of the once-Portuguese colony that rivaled European capitals with its splendor and wealth at Old Goa, a World Heritage Site. The city steadily grew long before the Portuguese arrived in 1510, but after the conquest, the port city simply bloomed. Visit the Se Cathedral, the largest church in Asia, which took 80 years to complete. The ancient market sites here represent that area where traders once came from China, Arabia, and Africa to trade in silk, spices, and incense. Walk through Rua Direita where shops and palatial villas once decorated the main avenue. Our Goa tour itinerary maker tool makes visiting Old Goa and other Goa attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

    I really was wondering these Catholic churches, as from the film, feeling that you find yourself in a distant, fairy-tale world. These kinds of terrible road)) wonderful people!)

    It will arrive in about 20 minutes by local bus from panaji. I think if it is gathered up the Centre of the Church, was not one neat looking go take about half a day. Has become a world heritage site, visits, was not hurt.

Where to stay in Goa

One of the more affordable regions for staying in India, Goa offers a good range of sleeping options, from budget to luxurious. Visitors looking for that feeling of home away from home can explore rental apartments, which offer more space than a hotel room and often come with fully equipped kitchens. Look for an apartment in Oxel or Siolim, peaceful villages with gated communities and a range of facilities. Beach houses and private villas offer an alternative for those with deeper pockets, while beach huts/shacks work well for budget-conscious travelers.
