You can relax or explore in Goa where beautiful golden beaches combine perfectly with history and culture in this exotic destination influenced by a one time Portuguese rule.

Goa Also has an interesting history and culture. A visit to Old Goa in the north will include the UNESCO World Heritage protected Bom Jesus Basilica dating back to 1594 and one of India’s oldest churches. It contains the tomb of St. Francis Xavier. The floor of this impressive church is inlaid with marble and precious stones and also includes an art gallery.

Day 2

Half Day Tour of Old Goa

Goa with its tangled twisted streets, plazas and ochre villas of the old city is a wealth of exceptionally impressive churches and convents, all UNESCO world heritage sites. Explore the Basilica of Bom Jesus, a fine example of Jesuit architecture, and perhaps the richest of the churches, with its heavily decorated yet admirably proportioned interior. While noted for its size and style, the Bom Jesus is visited mainly for the precious relic it contains. Here worshipers, or the simply curious, may view the body of Saint Francis Xavier (d.1562), which lies partially exposed in a dazzling silver casket. Its surrounding chapel, constructed of marble and jasper, was a gift of one of the last Medicis.

The Se, or St. Catherine's Cathedral, was commissioned to be "a grandiose church worthy of the wealth, power and fame of the Portuguese who dominated the seas from the Atlantic to the Pacific." It is still larger than any church in Portugal. Its exterior is in Tuscan style, with one remaining tower containing the "Golden Bel", which rang during the Inquisition to announce the public torture and burning of suspected heretics.

A short distance away is the Church of St. Cajetan, which was modeled on St. Peter's in Rome. Its neo classical façade, with twin towers flanking the great dome, disguises an interior that is pure, unrestrained baroque. Hidden beneath the church is a crypt where the embalmed bodies of Portuguese governors were kept in lead coffins before they were shipped back to Lisbon. Forgotten for a time, the last batch was removed only in 1992.

En route to your hotel you will drive through the Panjim city area, Goa's bustling capital.
