Churches - The Basilica of Bom Jesus in Old Goa is famed as holding the mortal remains of St. Francis Xavier and is regarded as the best example of Baroque architecture in the country. The basilica was completed in 1605 and is today one of the most popular places to see in Old Goa Se Cathedral Se Cathedral is the largest church in the whole of Asia, ensuring it's among the most celebrated religious buildings in India and one of the most fascinating places to see in Old Goa. Se Cathedral - Constructed from 1563, one of the cathedral’s most famous features is its large bell known as the ‘Golden Bell’. It's the largest in Goa and is also recognized as one of the best bells in the world, on account of its rich tone. Ruins Of st Augustine - The crumbling remains of the Church of St. Augustine in Old Goa perhaps serve as the perfect metaphor for the fallen era of Portuguese colonisation. All that remains of the old church is a 46-metre high tower which was once the belfry of the structure. The church was built in the early 1600s before falling into neglect and gradually collapsing between 1842 and 1938. The church’s bell however still rings today, but in the Church of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception in Panjim. Church of St Cajetan - The Church of St. Cajetan in Old Goa is well known for being modelled on the original design of St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome. It’s presented in an impressive white façade, set beside the Mandovi River and just a stone’s throw from the majestic Se Cathedral. The church was completed in 1661, displaying two towers on either side serving as the belfry. Archaeological Museum - An archaeological museum and portrait gallery rolled into one, anyone hoping to gain a broader insight into the archaeological and artistic history of Goa should certainly pay a visit to this fascinating museum in Old Goa. Many artefacts, sculptures and objects from the Portuguese rule are among the most intriguing inhabitants of the museum, spread across eight galleries which also cover the pre-historic era of Goa.

The Church of Our Lady of Immaculate Conception This is one of the most frequented sight-seeing places in Goa. The lovely church which stands tall in the capital city of Goa has had a long tryst with the past. It was first built as a chapel in 1541. Over this chapel, the larger building of the church was then constructed in 1619. It has since undergone many revisions, but the original building has remained. It draws devotees from all over the globe and has been a spiritual and geographical landmark for centuries. Old Portuguese sailors who crossed the perilous seas safely and landed at Goa would pay their first thanks at this church. Today, this church is a gorgeous white landmark in Panaji with a lovely multicoloured interior that at once imparts peace and delight. It is at its best in December as the feast of Our lady of immaculate conception is celebrated on 8th of December followed by the Christmas and New year celebrations. If you’re in Panaji even for a couple of hours at any time of the year, drop by this church and simply revel in the silence within its walls. Timings: 10am-12.30pm & 3-5.30pm Mon-Sat, 11am-12.30pm & 3.30-5pm Sun, English Mass at 8am daily Location: Emilio Gracia & Jose Falcao Road, Panaji How to reach from Panaji: By bus or cab

ANJUNA FLEA MARKET - Many tourists associate the name of Anjuna with its wild nightlife and trance scene. But that is just one aspect of Anjuna. The weekly Wednesday Flea Market is another. Flea markets are a quintessential Goan experience and the Anjuna Flea market is one of the best in Goa. It is an interesting off set to the beach scene and is only in operation from mid-November to April. The market first came into existence alongside the party scene at Anjuna beach in the eighties. Hippies from all over the West congregated here to sell off their personal items, like Levis jeans and other trinkets, in order to fund their stay. Partying does cost a lot after all. But now, the place has evolved into a good-sized market with goods from all over India being sold here. Both Westerners and Indians mill around the place buying and selling and generally enjoying themselves. You can snag some great cloth pieces for really good rates at the market. Tea stalls and snack stalls line the streets too, allowing the visitors to have a good time without worrying about food. Other breakfast places are close at hand. Visit the Anjuna Flea Market in order to get a taste of the other side of Anjuna and some interesting trinkets. Timings: 8 am, Wednesday Location: Anjuna, North Goa How to reach from Panaji: Anjuna is not at a great distance from Panaji. Taking a cab will be the most convenient option besides buses and scooters for hire.

Water Sports, Snorkelling
Grand Island - There is no dearth of water related activities in Goa, of course. But while the different beaches up and down Goa offer tourists many options, these options are not to be found all in one place. Not so in grand island.

Scuba diving in Goa is the most popular activity because it offers so much in terms of underwater exploration. There are ship wrecks to be found here as well as some reefs. The “Suzy” wreck and the “Davy Jones Locker” are especially popular with divers as are Serge City, Bounty Rock, and Turbo Tunnel. Experienced and beginner divers both find something to satisfy in Grand Island. You can also go snorkelling. Professional instructors will provide the equipment and the instructions. Bumper boats and banana boats are also popular around the island. End the day with a fishing trip and a barbeque of the produce you caught. A day trip usually lasts from 8.30am to 4 pm but it can be negotiated beforehand. If you want an in-depth underwater experience, Grand Island is one of the places to visit in Goa. You will come back from your trip exhausted but well-satisfied with your day. Make sure to carry all your swimming and beach essentials as well as spare clothes for the day.
