About the experience

When you think of Goa, the thriving nightlife and serene beaches may be the first things to come to your mind. However, Goa is also a place where colonial rulers have left behind their heritage and cultures in the churches that are spread across the region. Primarily the monumental churches of Old Goa are visited leaving behind several others which are equally beautiful and rich in heritage. 

 Carefully hidden behind the walls of these majestic monuments are mysteries that have been discovered only recently during the restoration. It has been thought that the astounding works of art on the walls of these monumental buildings could have been inspired by the Hindu Temples along the Konkan Coast. The ancient craft of KAAVI, which involves filling an etched image with a mixture of dirt and charcoal, will leave you wondering how someone could have such an intricate talent with such beautiful results. Pay heed to how these ancient artworks have withstood the test of time and survived to tell their tales today. 

In addition to this, you’ll also visit the rustic remains of one of the biggest churches ever built in Goa. From colourful murals to rich blue stucco plasterwork, there’s plenty to be seen on this trail. This trail also touches upon the recent restorations and discoveries right from hidden forms of art to the bones of a Georgian Queen.  

If you’re a history buff, then this trail is definitely worth looking into!

FAQs

As you will be on foot, it’s advisable to wear closed walking or running shoes with a good grip and support around the ankles.   

Goa is hot and humid so it’s best to wear light cotton clothes if you’re walking around for long periods of time.  

If it’s necessary for you to carry anything, we recommend packing as light as possible. Carry a water bottle, mosquito repellent, sunscreen, and shades as these will come in handy during the walk. 

Yes! This trail welcomes both tourists and locals to discover a rich Goan heritage.
