The capital city of Goa is a microcosm of this exciting holiday destination. Exciting and laidback at the same time, it offers the perfect balance of fun and relaxation. The centre of the city is dominated by a beautiful church that is a perfect example of Portuguese architecture.
The old Latin Quarter of Fontainhas, with its quaint Portuguese Villas, is one of the must-visit places in Goa. It is now home to heritage hotels, designer stores and boutiques. Discover local delights as you amble along the Panjim promenade at evening. You can gaze across the Mandovi river as beautifully lit-up local cruises sail back and forth.
For history buffs, the Goa State Museum and Goa State Excise Museum are treasure-troves of old stories and artefacts. For all this and more, Panjim is one of the most recommended tourist destinations in Goa.
