Fontainhas, Panjim

4.3
Observe the sophisticated architecture at Fontainhas, where old European style blends with a distinctly Indian ambience. Explore the neighborhood's winding alleyways lined with tile-roof houses in blue and red, which bring the city's Portuguese past to life. Not only does the architectural design put the site on the map, but also its natural surroundings, with the creek of Ourem running at the east, and Altinho Hill on the west. Other cultural attractions include a 400-year-old chapel, a World Heritage-listed basilica, and a beach.

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.
