There is nothing to see at Viceroy's Arch. More over the road is buzzing with traffic so you cant even spend much time. Even if you dont visit this place you wont be missing anything.

A pretty small arch, no big deal, no major significance either as far as I could find. Driving around the area is nice, with the river on one side.

This arch is situated at walkable distance from Basilica of Bom Jesus, Se Cathedral, Church of St Francis of Assisi and Archeological Museum of Goa. Better visited in the morning or late afternoon to avoid sun during the walk between these places.

The old entrance to the inside of the fortress walls back when the Portuguese ruled Goa. Must see while in Old Goa.

After concluding old Goa visit of magnificent churches ,Viceroy Arch gate should be visited. The historical facts are placed near the arch gate. Moving ahead from the gate few minutes should be given to see the beauty of river Mandovi & a jetty

This is simple Gate build in Arch shape by Portuguese viceroy in 16th Century. If you just take out this historical significance there is nothing to seen here. It is like simple gate of fort wall like structure. You can see the place enroute but...More

happened to just visit this place while enroute, good picturesque heritage sight but not worth to take a trip far unless crave for architectural histories.
