Trail Overview

The Saligao Village Trail

Saligao happens to be a beautiful village in North Goa that you will pass by without ever noticing its true colors. A 'Paasai' is a leisurely evening walk that is very common in Goa. It is relaxing, and interesting and can offer tiny surprises on the way. This quaint village has interesting stories, local legends and also an array of beautiful houses along narrow scenic lanes of the Saligao village.

One of the most unique churches of Goa, The Gothic Mãe De Deus Church built in 1873 and the ancestral houses have created a niche for itself in this picturesque Saligao village. We explore the village on foot through its houses and the culture of the village, through this village trail. Are you ready for the Saligao village Paasai?
