Što ćete raditi

The walk begins Tobacco Square near the main Post Office in Panjim and then leads us into the heritage precinct of St. Thomas ward, passing the small chapel of Sao Tome.

We visit the famous old 31st January Bakery, and then move into the Fontainhas area passing the chapel of St. Sebastian.

This leads to a cluster of interesting buildings around Panjim Inn, Portuguese Foundation, and Galerie Gitanjali.

We give you an exclusive insider access to visit a famous Goan musician and get insights into Portuguese influence on Goan music. Get mesmerized by Fado, Latin and Folk music performed by the musician.

We then return to the Post Office by a different route highlighting the elements and places of interest that liven up the Latin Quarters in the evenings .

Our presenters will highlight all the above places with fascinating history and anecdotes that are unheard of and will share a very unique perspective of the making of Fontainhas.
Other things to note
The experience may not be enjoyed by infants and toddlers.
We suggest you to bring your own water bottle, preferably a reusable water bottle as we would like to minimize the usage of single use plastic products.
Wear comfortable footwear and carry a Hat/ Cap.

To begin with the tour was very informative. We had the opportunity to walk around with Lata as our guide and she explained every detail and added colour to the history of the architecture and the houses. Overall this was a pretty fun experience where the group learnt a lot about the Portuguese influence in Goa. I would highly recommend this to everyone who would want to take a break from the booze and beaches in Goa and go for a cultural introspection.

This walk was the highlight of our trip with Lata from Make it happen sharing a rich history of Fontainhas and the culture of Goa. Walking through small roads and colourful houses, exploring their architectural elements and discovering tiny nooks which you otherwise wouldn’t find were just some of the many things which stood out for us. Her ways of sharing the history through stories captivated everyone around and her energy is definitely contagious and keeps you going all the way till the end. We will definitely be taking the other walks from Make it Happen the next time we visit.

Venita was a superb host who knew her facts. She made the experience personal and had a bag full of historical anecdotes. I really enjoyed the surprise musical performance and visit to the local Goan shop where Venita helped me pick up some local Goan delicacies. This was my first AirBNB experience and was totally worth it.

The experience was so wonderful and the storyteller Amreen had a lot of insights about the area. Tasting Goan sweet made my mind go gaga. In the end, there was musical session for us. Overall 5 starts well deserved.

I would highly recommend the Heritage walk to everyone irrespective of whether you are a history buff of not. Raysancia’s anecdotes and storytelling transport you back in time. It’s awe-inspiring how knowledgeable and passionate she is for her age. The walk helped us understand the history of Goa and stories behind little things like statues of roosters, smoking balconies, and so much more. We were also served refreshments while Francis played us beautiful songs on his guitar. The walk was definitely the highlight of our trip.

Very good way to get introduced to Fontainhas. The walk is not lengthy so most people can do it. The host pointed out important locations and history of the area in great detail.
