Church of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception
Church Square, Panaji 403001
Built in the year 1619, this church looks unique because of its design which is like a Christian Wedding Cake. The church was built by the Portuguese by replacing what was an even bigger church. The previous church was built in the 16th Century. Over the years there have been many additions and beautifications made to this church and this is also one reason for which it stands steady whereas the main church of Goa is almost in ruins in spite of being built in the 18th Century. This was earlier the place where the sailors from Lisbon used to halt and pray to thank the lord for their safety and then head towards Ela in the North Goa.
Miramar Beach
3 km from Panaji Centre, Near Dayanand Bandodker Marg, Panaji
The main beach in the heart of the city, this is just a few minutes drive from the Panjim Main Market. Being is such a location, this beach is almost everytime crowded. The scenic beauty is awesome and the main reason is that this is the mouth of the Mandovi River. The slope of the beach is gentle and thus this place is ideal for swimming. You can also go for a morning or evening walk along the beach or sit and enjoy some snacks sold by the sellers who sit on the shores. This is however not the best beach if you are seeking one with lot of serenity and peacefulness.

It is worth climbing the hill and one can get a breathtaking view of surrounding lush green fields and the Sea.Few place around Velsao we could not cover-Velsao beachCansaulim beachWe move towards Majorda beach in Salcete. The roads were all surrounded by blazing green grass fields and by small flamboyant houses painted. The beach was calm and the water was cool. It was SUN SAND SEA and ME under the sky in silent communion. It’s a beautiful feeling when the white-trimmed waves touch your feet. The beach has a new exotic experience to offer - 'eagle feeding'. Once the boat is deep enough in the water, the boatman stops rowing and flings a piece of chicken into the waters. Instantly, the sky is covered in nothing less than a hundred of Eagles. This view is incredible.Your day ends best with the Goan style ‘Masala King Fish’. Goan style food is unbeatable.Advise- Sea food in Goan style is worth trying. Some of the best of them are -Prawn Balchao, Rava Fried Fish, Chicken Xacuti, Chicken Cafreal and the list go on…..
