Frozen in time!
Oct 2021 • Friends
A must visit place when in Panjim! The area is Peaceful, delightfully colourful, clean and green! A stroll through these buildings is sure to take you back in time. There are some very interesting and well designed restaurants, bars and cafe's in the area for when you get hungry and wanna hang around a little more!

For those who love art, history and life itself
Oct 2021 • Solo
This beautiful LatinQuarter was built in the 18th century in the capital city of #Panjim and lies on the banks of the OuremCreek
This #WorldHeritageSite is known for its narrow, winding streets and lanes, quaint #Portuguese style houses with red-tiled roofs. It’s interesting that many of the PortugueseHouses have either a rooster or a solider on the roof. Charming cafes, beautiful homes, an art gallery, boutique heritage hotels, artefacts are what you’ll find here.
You can get a guide who will be able to tell you the history of all the famous buildings or ramble around on your own and grab a coffee at one of the little cafés.

This quarter is a history and/or ArtLovers dream. It is a delight for a photographer too

The Other side of Goa ‘Fontainhas’
Oct 2021 • Family
Hello all I’m Sanchith Bhoopalam 11 yrs old,
What do we all think when we hear goa, most of us will think about parties, beaches etc
But there is another side of Gaa too,
Which I visited with my family ‘ Fontainhas ‘
Here goes my trip,
We were in Mysore before we went to Goa, We flied to Goa because it was a lot faster and more comfy than going in a car or a train.
Once we reached Goa we were shocked by seeing the crowd, we literally took 1 hour to go from the airport to our hotel while going to our hotel which was in fontainhas we had lunch in sher-e-punjab the food there was amazing ! I recommend you to go there. Once we reached our hotel, Panjim Inn, we went had some rest then we went to a heritage tour by make it happen they really made it happen we had a blast with them, I enjoyed the history which they told to us and then we went back to our hotel and rested for a while and then we again went to a food tour by make it happen which was also amazing we had to go to 5 restaurants but we were full and we only went to 4 restaurants all of them were really good. The next morning I went to a e- cycle tour in dona paula by b-live which was wonderful the e-bike was like riding a scooter, Then we just relaxed for some time and then went to north-goa this trip was amazing I recommend you to at least visit fontainhas, if you can stay there just go and stay there !
Now if someone talks about goa fontainhas also comes in my mind !

A walk back in time
Jul 2021 • Couples
I definitely recommend going on a sleepy lazy Sunday, around 4:30/5pm when the sun isn't too strong, the shops are shut and there's not too many people. It's a beautiful charming walk, through narrow lanes, old architecture and beautifully painted villas. You get a feel for what life must have been like in the Portuguese days. Definitely do go on a weekday too, and check out the cute boutique stores, quaint restaurants, cafes and guest houses.

Surreal!!!!!!
Dec 2020
Was a lazy afternoon in the little roads of Fontainhaas and I felt that i was walking amongst the lanes in Greece....Loved the animals perched on entrance pillars of houses to bring good luck....beautiful soothing colours of all old houses....I wish I could etch all of this in my memory.
Im sure, everytime I go back to Goa..I will walk through these lanes again...

I Must put in a few words about our guideAmeez Baig..know everything about this beautiful piece of land. Make it a point to go with him the first time.
take the tour tour through Trip advisor.

Part of the city that froze in time!
Nov 2020
A place to stroll and adore the old buildings, the little eateries, the feel real Goa, its culture. The area is small yet it is large! Each nook has a history, each corner has a story. It's a place where you must take it slow and let the surrounding seep in deep.

Goan Vibes at its best
Sep 2019 • Couples
If one wants to experience Goan vibes then this place is a must visit. Houses are painted in bright colors with. Entire place can be covered through small lanes. It certainly gives a charm of a city walk one associates with foreign locations.
