Old Goa is only nine kilometers east of Panaji. Founded in 1510 by Alfonso de Albuquerque as the old capital, the place is replete with churches and more churches. The Se Cathedral, the Convent and Church of St. Francis of Assisi, Professed House and Basilica of Bom Jesus, the Church and Convent of St. Monica, the Church of St. Cajetan and the ruins of the Church of St. Augustine are, probably, the more mentionable of the lot. But the list of old buildings, all reflecting the chapters of bygone times, doesn’t quite and here. Take the local bus from Panaji and chat up the friendly-faced Goan by your side. She his face light up as he tells you what more is there in Old Goa. In fact, he’ll probably tell you what all the books together might not tell.
