Old Goa, Panjim
(4.3/5 based on 950+ 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.

  • Goa was a Portugese colony until 1961!!! It is full of rich colonial history. The churches are fantastic 
  • This is the most important Catholic India space possible in Asia. Several churches and convents. A Portuguese legacy still lingers
    View original
  • The Old Goa church - impressive building - well maintained - though its almost 200+ years old..may be more... about 40 min to walk around..is good visit.
