Saligao Tourism & Travel Guide

Saligao is a beautiful village situated in the picturesque backdrop of Goa. It is just 6 km from Mapusa, the most famed town of North Goa. Lush green meadows, coconut palms stretched on the edges of roads, paddy fields, and serene beaches will accompany you everywhere as you explore Saligao. One of the most beautiful attractions of Saligao is the timeworn parish church of Mae de Deus, known for standing tall for 125 years. Mae de Deus is great example of Gothic architecture in Goa. Parra, Calangute, Candolim, Guirim, Sangolda and Pierce are some of the neighbouring small towns that can also be visited while you're here. While travelling in Goa, you may witness little maze-like structure houses with greenery spread all over the pathways, which are a feast to the eyes. Candolim beach and Mapusa village are the most visited travel destinations of Goa and are closest to Saligao.

We drove through Saligao and back and ended up at the far end of Calangute Beach – a part of the beach that isn’t frequented by too many tourists....

Weekend Getaways from Saligao 

Best time to visit - January,February,March,October,November,December
Before the tropical air hits you here, an uncanny sense of time travel does, as you scan the historic Vijayanagar's devastatingly beautiful ruins and temples spread across the boulder-strewn landscape. The ancient capital of the Vijayanagara Empire (1343-1565), which has now become a favourite hipster holiday destination, is best explored on foot or bicycle. It has a lot of famous attractions such as the Hemakuta Hill, home to the ancient scattered ruins and a monolithic sculpture of Hindu God Vishnu, along with Hampi Bazaar, once an ancient trading spot for horses, silk, cows, precious stones and now a hub of handicraft shops and little restaurants, with the 15th century Virupaksha temple at its western end and the 16th century Vittala temple at its eastern end. Sule Bazaar and the Achyutaraya temple is also a must visit. This historic expedition can get tiresome and overwhelming for many, and the village in contrast maintains a very laid back atmosphere, with innumerable guest houses spread around, some even with a fascinating spartan setting, costing no more than 300 rupees. Just like its ruins, an ancient festival called the Hampi Utsav has also been kept alive since the Vijayanagar reign and is celebrated annually in November, with light and sound shows, music and dance performances, all boasting of the Kannadigas' rich culture, set against the backdrop of Hampi's ruins. The Mango Tree restaurant is a quaint place reached via passing through a banana plantation. Other good places to eat include Prince Restaurant, Goan Corner Restaurant and Laughing Buddha, popular for South Indian, Chinese, Israeli, Tibetan, and usual vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes, enjoyed by the riverside.
