Goa Holidays :: Goa Sightseeing

Church Square is a leafy rectangular park located in the heart of Panjim opposite to India Government tourist office. It is also known as Municipal Garden. The church was built in 1541 for the benefit of saliors arriving here from Lisbon.

With its slanting tiled roofs, carved-stone coats of arms and wooden verandas, the stalwart Secretariat looks typically colonial. Yet, it was originally the summer palace of Goa's 16th century Muslin ruler. Today it accommodates the Goan State Legislature.

The Archbishop's Palace is unique as the last surviving civil building of colonial Goa's golden era. 19th century photos show that the city-facing side of the building was originally enfolded by a low wall, which surrounded a garden. This has long been dismantled, but the two grand entrance porches remain intact.

Modeled on the original design of St Peter's in Rome, this church was built by Italian friars of the Order of Threatens, who were sent by Pope Urban III to preach Christianity. The construction of the church began in 1655 in Old Goa.

The most noteworthy feature of Panjim's State Archaeological Museum is its impressive size, which stands in completely inverse proportion to the collections inside. The only rarities to be found amid the lame array of temple sculpture, hero stones and dowdy colonial-era artifacts are a couple of beautiful Jain bronzes.

A church cemetery with room for more burials in a tranquil rural area. The cemetery is in fair condition. Here are many unreadable home-made monuments and many slabs with names and dates attempted to be scratched onto the surface. There are some completely unmarked graves. Wherever it was possible an attempt was made to interpret the hand inscribed names and dates.
