Panaji: Heritage Walk through Goa's Latin Quarter

2. Panaji: Heritage Walk through Goa's Latin Quarter

Meet your guide at the Panjim Head Post Office near the Mala district of Panjim. Walk through the lesser-known but culturally-rich Fontainhas area of Goa, the oldest and largest Latin quarter in Asia. See heritage homes, appreciate Portuguese architecture, meet friendly locals, and experience the cultural side of Goa. Developed in the late eighteenth century, Fontainhas derived its name - "little fountain" in Portuguese - from the springs found at the base of the Altinho hills. A strong Portuguese influence still prevails in this neighborhood, evident from the architectural style and the road names. Begin your walk at Tobacco Square and trace the arrival of the Portuguese in Goa. Along the way, your knowledgable guide will be happy to share information based on your personal interests. Pass by the small Church of San Thome. Stop into the quaint 31st January Bakery for a quick bite. Take photos against the neighborhood’s colorful backdrop as you make your way to the Chapel of San Sebastian. Explore interesting buildings around Panjim Inn, Fundacao Orient, and Galerie Gitanjali. Lastly, visit a famous Goan musician and learn about the Portuguese influence on Goan music. Before heading back to the meeting point, you can stop by a studio which makes handcrafted ceramic souvenirs.

What people are saying about Goa

We had a very fun and informative walk with Lata Rodrigues. She was very pleasant and took us walking around the Latin Square lanes which we enjoyed a lot. A stop by at Uncle Chico's home was like an icing on the cake. He was such a sweet soul who entertained us with Goan Songs in his pretty little home! Highly recommend anyone visiting Goa to take this stroll with Lata!

We had a really enriching experience, loved walking through the colorful lanes and learning about roosters, roofs, sweets (got to eat some sweets as well) and Christmas, among other things. The tour ended with songs and we learnt a lovely dance step! Our storyteller was fabulous too!

The tour guide Nelson was great, he told us great stories about Goa and was there with all his love, you can tell he enjoys it. Super great

A good alternative to usual beach side tourism inGoa. Lovely photo opportunity to shoot around the old architecture
