After a delicious breakfast at the hotel, you proceed for sightseeing of North Goa. Discover the magnificent forts and beaches that attract tens of thousands of tourists from all over the world every year.
Start with a visit to the Fort Aguada. The fort was constructed in 1612 to guard against the Dutch and the Marathas. It was a reference point for the vessels coming from Europe at that time. This old Portuguese fort stands on the beach south of Candolim, at the shore of the Mandovi River. It was initially tasked with defence of shipping and the nearby Bardez sub district.
Next visit to Reis Magos Fort which was built on the ruins of a pagoda in 1550 by the Franciscans. The Fort, originated as an armed outpost of the Adil Shah of Bijapur in 1493. When Bardez was conquered by the Portuguese in 1541, the Fort was built along with the church.
Lunch will be in one of the café in North Goa.
This tour is followed by visit to Chapora Fort. Chapora Fort, located in Bardez, Goa, rises high above the Chapora River. Before the Portuguese arrived in Goa in 1510, this location was the site of another fort. The fort changed hands several times after Portuguese acquired Bardez.
Later proceed to the famous Queen of beaches – Calangute and Baga.
Calangute beach is located between Baga and Candolim beach. It is known for its cafes and relatively nice prices. It is here that you will find restaurants of popular global nets and you can enjoy the services of spas at an affordable price.
Baga Beach – a place which will make you to feel the atmosphere of party. The best time for visiting Baga beach is an evening and night time, when all shacks and clubs open their doors for customers and you will definitely want to hang out on a famous Titos line.
Evening at leisure. Overnight stay at the hotel.
After tasty breakfast you are going to spend your day exploring the religious and nature part of Goa.
Proceed to Old Goa churches – The Basilica of Bom Jesus or Borea Jezuchi Bajilika (Portuguese: Basílica do Bom Jesus) is located in Goa, India, and is part of the Churches and convents of Goa UNESCO World Heritage Site. The basilica holds the mortal remains of St. Francis Xavier. The church is located in Old Goa, which was the capital of Goa in the early days of Portuguese rules.
We decided that it would be a great idea to have lunch at a real spice plantation. First you will get acquainted with the process of spices planting and life of ancient villages. And later you will enjoy a wonderful lunch cooked with love from organic products grown on this plantation of spices.
After a hearty lunch, having bought natural oils and delicious spices, we set off to get acquainted with the Hindu side of Goa – Mangueshi and Nagueshi Temples. Mangueshi Temple is one of the largest and most frequently visited temples in Goa. As per mythological tales, it is said that Lord Shiva had once visited the land distraught after losing heavily to his wife Parvati at a game of dice. As Goddess Parvati came looking for him, he tried to prank her by shape shifting into a tiger and frightening her. Seeing the predator in front of her, Parvati shrieked and prayed uttering the following words Trahi Mam Grisha, roughly translated this means “O Lord of the Mountains, save me”. Upon hearing her plea Shiva reverted to his usual form and returned to Kailash with her. The area in Goa where all of this took place was later marked by constructing a Mangueshi temple.
Evening return to the hotel.
