Where to stay in Sigiriya

Offering an introduction to the history and culture of the state, Panjim sits above a wide river and boasts a laid-back, cosmopolitan atmosphere. Wearing its colonial heritage proudly in its contemporary multiculturalism, Panjim represents one of the most accessible and international cities in the country. Historical attractions in Panjim include a number of colonial Portuguese churches and other storied buildings, lining the leafy thoroughfares and dotting the knotted streets of the main European-influenced districts. The whitewashed architecture of the walkable city center gives way to golden beaches to the south along the coast--popular day trip ideas with locals and tourists alike.
