Day 1 : Day Itinerary
Se Cathderal Church - One of the most ancient and celebrated religious buildings of Goa, which took more than 62 years to complete, is an imposing building, commissioned in 1631. The church is dedicated to St Catherine of Alexandria.
Basilica of Bom Jesus - It is one of the most important attractions of Goa. The Basilica was constructed in 1605 and is world famous for housing the tomb and mortal remains of St Francis Xavier who is considered by Catholics as one of the patron saints of Goa. The basilica is constructed in Portuguese style and the architecture is mesmerizing.
Latin Quarter of Panjim - While some buildings may be a little faded, there’s no denying that the maze of narrow, winding lanes in the Latin Quarter of Panjim, or Panaji as it is also known, are oozing with charm and atmosphere. This neighborhood, dating back to colonial times, has retained its character over the years with its whitewashed churches and colorful heritage homes. It’s a great place to explore and even get a little lost. Amongst the cheerfully painted homes, you’ll also most likely stumble across some charming souvenir shops and quirky art galleries, such as the Gitanjali Art Gallery & Café on 31st January Road, displaying artwork by Indian and a few international artists.
Dona Paula bay - Dona Paula beach is located just about 7-km from Panaji. This place is called the Lovers Paradise in Goa, named after Dona Paula de Menezes. A myth has been attached to this place and according to one legend, the Viceroy's daughter after facing objections from her family about her love affair with a poor fisherman jumped off of the cliff.
The place where two of Goa's famous rivers meet the Arabian Sea is the bay of Dona Paula with a very good view of the Marmagao Harbor. 7-km from Panjim, situated on the south side of the hammer-shaped headland that divides the Zuari and Mandovi, is a fishing village. Jet skiing is a very common sport at this beach.
The beauty of Goa Dona Paula beach has been enhanced by a poky past, which has the tourists thronging to this place. History goes that the beach is named after Dona Paula de Menses, daughter of a viceroy (in colonial India) who threw herself off the cliff when refused permission to marry a local fisherman, Gaspar Dias. The beach has also been the location for many Indian movies. Given this dual attraction, Dona Paula Beach has become popular among the tourist spots in Goa.
