Half Day Sightseeing

Get going around Goa

On this popular tour you first drive to Dona Paula, an idyllic spot which overlooks Goa’s magnificent harbour of Marmagoa, before continuing to Panjim via Miramar Beach. In 1843 the Portuguese Court in Lisbon issued a Royal Decree making Panjim the new capital of Goa which was a fishing village until then. Today Panjim still exudes that old charm, with Portuguese architecture mirrored in the houses spread along the River Mandovi.

Notable among the classic structures are the Panjim Church, Bishop's Palace and Palacio Idalcao, which was built by Adil Shah in 1492. Stop at the fruit and vegetable market to experience the sights and smells of Goa and later visit Old Goa, which was the old capital. Then stop at the Basilica of Bom Jesus where the incorruptible remains of St. Francis Xavier are kept in a silver casket entombed in a Florentine style marble mausoleum.

Mansions of Goa & Goa Chitra Tour

Mansions of Goa & Goa Chitra Tour

Along with endless beaches, Goa is also dotted with beautiful old buildings reminding us of the Portuguese who ruled Goa for 450 years.
Goan mansions, Menezes Braganza House and Palacio De Deao reflect a dozen historical upheavals. But more than anything they reflect the arrival of the Portuguese in 1510 and their stay in Goa till 1961. The Goan craftsmen however worked their mischievous artistry to sneak into Christian idolatry their own primal cult figures. They joyously moulded the Madonna's as bosomy as their primal Laxmi's (also spelt as Lakshmi's), their Christ's as angular as the Himalayan Sadhu. They blended Mediterranean flora, grapes and vines, with Indian fauna, elephants, tigers and lions.
Enjoy traditional delicious home cooked meal (lunch) with mineral water at Palácio do Deão.
