What you can expect

Go beyond the pristine beaches of Goa and visit its colonial past with this heritage tour of Fontainhas! See a unique blend of Indian and Portuguese culture in every corner of the Old Latin Quarter; from architecture and music, to historical sites and Catholic churches. Start your journey with a meet up at the General Post Office Panjim, where your local English-speaking guide awaits. Make your first stop at the nearby Tobacco Square, an excellent starting point for easy access to all of Fontainhas' streets. Gaze upon the colourful houses and establishments while on your way to the heritage district of St. Thomas ward and the small church of San Thome, areas that give insight into the religious influence of the Portuguese. Grab a quick bite of Goan delicacies at the 31st January Bakery before your tour continues on to the 18th century chapel of San Sebastian. Walk farther along the beaten path and discover a cluster of fascinating heritage sites: Panjim Inn, Fundacao Orient, and Galerie Gitanjali. Hear the extent of Goa's Portuguese roots in music when you visit a famous Goan musician, which varies depending on the day. Shop for handcrafted ceramic souvenirs for loved ones back home at Marcou Artificial before your tour ends.
