Discover the best of city life in Goa on this free walking tour of Panaji accompanied by an expert guide, who will show you the capital's highlights. Get to know the legendary history of the former Portuguese colony.

Itinerary

Start your free walking tour of Panaji at the Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception Church, one of the first Catholic sites built in the Goa region. You'll be captivated by this imposing white building, a striking image amongst the green palm trees that frame it.

Following your English speaking tour guide, you'll head to the Altinho Hill district, a residential neighbourhood favoured by the old colonial elite. Here you'll see the Bishop's Palace, the High Court building and the official residence of the Prime Minister of Goa.

You'll stroll through different streets marked by the colonial Portuguese influence, where you'll appreciate the traditional architectural styles of the houses and their colourful façades. Throughout your tour, you'll visit the Chapel of St Sebastian, in the old Latin Quarter, or Fontainhas. Here, you'll also stop at a small Scandinavian art gallery, and visit the Hindu neighbourhood.

To finish your walking tour of Panaji past and present, you'll head to the Maruti Temple, a beautiful religious building located on a hilltop above the city. The temple, dedicated to the Hindu god Hanuman, stands out thanks to its stunning red and white architecture and its impressive views over the Goan capital. Here, your guide will finish the free tour, and you'll have free time to explore and take photos.
