Goan Heritage Walk

The economic & cultural capital of Goa, Margao is known for its rich culture and historic architectural landmarks! 

On our Margao Cultural Walk, we explore the oldest and most picturesque parts of Margao, a town donned with vast Goan mansions. One of the oldest churches of Goa, the Holy Spirit Church, a 450+ years old structure, located in the heart of Margao, holds great secrets that cannot be found in any other church in the world, right from its architecture to a special phenomenon that takes place every year!

We also explore a Goan mansion full of mysteries! The infamous 'Margao Massacre' takes place here, with some marks that speaks of the battles that were fought in the making of Margao. We will then take you on a journey of how the town was established – from architecturally rich houses holding stories in its details to splendid structures, once crucial for the Portuguese. We also visit a special monument that hosted one of the greatest personalities of India! 

This heritage walk will help you explore the beautiful lanes & suburbs of Margao on foot that come alive with a local narrating stories and legends of the town with a last stop for some local delicacies.
