The walk starts at the Viceroy's Arch near the Ferry point, where you get introduced to the historical Portuguese past of Old Goa. Old Goa was also known as ‘Rome of the East’ due to the incidence of prettily designed churches and wide open piazzas. We then pay a visit to the very beautiful St. Cajeten church of the Italian Order. St. Cajetan Church also known as the Church of Divine Providence is a church of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Goa. We then move ahead to old main street of Old Goa, the Rua Direita to pass by the Se Cathedral and the Church of St Francis. Se Cathedral is one of the most ancient and celebrated religious buildings of Goa. This magnificent 16th century monument in Goa, build under the Portuguese rule is the largest church in Asia. After surveying the pieces of ruined buildings displayed outside the Museum, we proceed to Old Goa’s first church, the Church of St Catherine, before reaching the Basilica of Bom Jesus where the remains of St Francis Xavier are to be found. Our presenters will highlight all the above places with fascinating history and anecdotes that are unheard of and will share a very unique perspective of the making of Old Goa.
