Old Goa Heritage Walk

50 reviews
The Old Goa Heritage Walk revisits some of the most fascinating facts during Portuguese rule. When Old Goa was Goa’s former capital city, it was a thriving city even during prior to Portuguese times. It was the capital of the Bahmani Sultan Adil Shah empire. The Portuguese arrived here in 1510 under their commander Afonso de Albuquerque, and captured the city from Adil Shah, the ruler of the Bijapur Kingdom. They came to the East in search of trade and to eventually spread Christianity.<br><br>In our Old Goa Heritage Walk, explore the some of the most historically significant buildings. Old Goa is a World Heritage site housing some of most grandest and oldest churches in the region. Among these are the Basilica of Bom Jesus which houses the remains of St. Francis Xavier. The imposing Sé Cathedral, the Church of St Francis of Assisi, the Chapel of St Catherine and the domed church of St. Cajetan.

This Church looks very beautiful from outside, not as massive as the other Churches and Cathedrals in Old Goa, located close to the Viceroy's Arch (Mandovi river) We did not go inside the Church as the kids were very tired, but the church is surrounded by beautiful gardens and the 'Adil Shah Doorway' is also located in the complex of this Church. The church is considered to have been modeled on St. Peter's Basilica in Vatican City and hence the architecture is extremely beautiful and looks very serene ... did not see many people here as the location is a little walk from the main road

Close to the bank of River Mandovi stands the famous St Cajetan Church dedicated to Our Lady of Providence in Velho Goa (Old Goa). When one approaches the 17th century church from the river walking across the Viceroy’s Arch on the left hand side, the sight of this church is unmistakable for its unique dome shaped structure, only of a kind in Goa. Below the dome is a fresh water well. It has more sedate locale from the hustle-bustle of its neighbouring Se Cathedral, the largest church in Goa and Basilica of Bom Jesus. This church has some similarity to St Peter’s Basilica at Vatican City. As one faces this church, just outside its precinct is a small arched structure considered to be the Gate of Yusuf Adil Shah Palace, the former ruler of Bijapur in the late 15th and early 16th century when Goa was part of the Bijapur Sultanate. The motifs on the gate appears to be that of some Indian style carving often observed in temple architecture
