Much of Old Goa consists of churches and convents. A Must Do on any tour, but the variety of experience is narrow. Can get hot around the cathedral.

A few places were suggested in various articles but we visited only one of the churches. Was busy when we visited.
A fair distance and long travel if you are in South Goa

"Old Goa" is a place that is protected by UNESCO. That's probably why it's always clean and beautiful here. Everything here was built by the Portuguese, so all the churches and temples here are Catholic. In general, it's nice to wander around Old Goa...

Together with Fountainhas, the Old Goa is the essential experience everyone must do before leaving the state. It is packed with UNESCO-listed churches which are honestly among some of the very best I have ever seen in the world.

North Goa houses most popular and crowded beaches like Baga, Calungute etc. and numerous pubs & restaurants and thereby becomes first choice for the tourists. On the other hand, South (Old) Goa contains several famous and heritage churches including Basilica of Bom Jesus which contains the relics of Saint Francis Xavier, Se Cathedral, Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception Church, etc. These churches are generally noiseless. We stayed at North Goa and hired a vehicle for a day trip to South Goa that included visit of Old Goa churches, Panjim city and its beaches etc. Old Goa is a lovely city with rich history and heritage. It was worth taking a break from crowded beachside to witness rich history and heritage of Old Goa.

I took a e-bike tour, which was definitely worth it to understand exactly what it was that I was seeing. A beautiful, culturally and historically rich location.
