|Old Goa is the
former colonial capital of Goa. Full of history, it today is
home to some scenic churches and convents, that are well
maintained and worth a visit. Make sure you have at least
half-a-day to adequately understand and appreciate the place.
The site is maintained by the Archaelogocal Survey of India,
and is a UNESCO listed World Heritage site.
This isn't a good place at which
to cast anchor. Accommodation options are limited. It's best
to stay at Panjim or elsewhere in Goa, as travel within the
small region tends to be easy -- even if traffic jams are a
growing reality due, in part, to the spurt in tourism.
Nearest hotels are in Panjim,
though there are a few in the locality too.
