Neat arch in old Goa

Your trip to Goa isn't complete without seeing the Viceroy's Arch and nearby Cathedrals. Take a break from the beach and do see the historic sites

I don't understand why people suggested me this place. It is just an arch, albeit a well maintained one. It is similar to an arch in many old cities of country. I will not even call it historical or architecture marvel as such.

Vicoroy's Arch in Old Goa is magnificent structure in Old Goa. It resembles Portuguese heritage and the site is wonderful. The view of the jetty through the arch was very nice.

The Viceroy’s Arch was erected by Vasco da Gama’s grandson, Francisco da Gama, who became viceroy in 1597. The arch carries the deer emblem on Vasco da Gama’s coat of arms. The statue of da Gama himself adorns the center of the arch.

It remind me of Mumbais Gate Way of India. Its on Way towards Panjim, the old Goa. Since it can be looked up while passing, its grandure impresses the viewer. It does require time to stop, study and understand the importance, which a casual on looker shall miss out totally. A Portugalan heritage edifice. Looks grand and magnificant.

Theres something special about this arch. SImple yet Majestic. If you can visit Old Goa by a boat cruise i would suggest you get down at the jetty and start your exploration of Old Goa from the Viceroys Arch. In the true path in which the viceroys walked in :)

Cannot miss Goa, without seeing this beautiful church and cathedral. A very peaceful place to be. Tends to get crowded and noisy due to tourist crowds but truly a wonderful UNESCO heritage place

Really nice place to visit with old church of historical importance. The place is really very clean and feel as if we are travelling in some foreign country.
