The heritage-visit experiences
If you want to take a break from the beach circuit, ask for our services to visit heritage sites of Old Goa. Trips can include visits to the magnificent churches of Goa like the famous Bom Jesus Basilica (part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site) which also houses the remains of St Francis Xavier, St Catherine’s Chapel, Church and Convent of St Francis of Assissi and St Cathedral - the largest church in India. Reflecting the Portuguese style of architecture, some of the churches have faded wall paintings and wooden carvings.
In stark contrast, is the equally fascinating Mahadeva Temples in Tambdi Surla which is the oldest temple of Goa that escaped Portuguese attention. Set in a clearing next to a stream, this temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva and has a pillared porch and three stepped entrances. It is the only specimen of Kadamba-Yadava style architecture and made of weather-proof, grey-black basalt.
