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.
