Not as majestic as other Gates of India. Just once a visit and that too not recommended if you are short of time as there are many other beautiful places around.

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.

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

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.
