Old Goa

The former Portuguese capital of the region before Panjim, Old Goa is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that’s home to several magnificent churches and cathedrals.

Fort Aguada
There are numerous remains of rugged forts scattered along Goa’s coast and rivers. The most famous of them is Fort Aguada, located next to the Candolim beach.

Fontainhas
It has been described as India’s only Latin quarter. The quiet charm of this Panjim neighbourhood’s narrow streets and tile-roofed houses is best discovered on foot.

Houses of Goa museum
The brainchild of well-known architect Gerard da Cunha, this museum stands out as much for its ship-like appearance as for the exhibits inside.

Chandor
To get a glimpse of the lavish lifestyle of colonial Goa’s land-owners, head to the small village of Chandor.
