Old Goa, Panjim

(4.3/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
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. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Old Goa by using our Goa vacation route planner.

  • If you are visiting Goa, then you might just want to take a round of Old Goa and visit some of the world heritage sites. The sites are not really an architectural marvel but still good. Visit this if ...  more »
  • Visited old Goa since only there for the day on cruise. There was red earth everywhere. The churches were well kept and clean. Small shops everywhere. Lots of cashew trees along the roadside. 
  • A great place for travelers interested in history, culturology. And just for those who love Goa
