Heritage walk through Panjim City
Duration: 3 to 4 hours
The modern word Panaji is derived from the words panjani and khali, which mean a boat and a small creek respectively, in Sanskrit. Thus the modern word Panjim is believed to be a corruption of the old word Panjanakhani .
We will begin our walk from the traditional causeway Ponte de Linhares which was built to handle the load of horse drawn carriages of its time but has handled the load of heavy motor vehicles since then. Wek will be covering up all the important buildings of the Portuguese era which would also include the famous landmark of the present day city the immaculate conception church , than proceeding up hill to Althino walking past some of the mansions belonging to the elite Goan families passing through the old Portuguese college Liceu today the branch of the Bombay high court and finally ending at the old Latin quarter of the city Fontainhas.

An Enjoyable Walking Tour Of Panjim City
Dear Mario, Thanks very much once again for the time that you spent with Elena and myself last week. We really enjoyed our tours in Goa, and the arrangements you made outside of those tours, including having Diego be available as our driver, and making arrangements for us at Utorda beach. Thanks in large part to your efforts, we had a great trip.
Mario I want to thank you for all of your hospitality during our stopover in Goa. You are very accommodating and knowledgable of the area. Thank you for ensuring our time in Goa was enjoyable. Mario I know this is overkill but I want to thank you again for taking care of all the arrangements while we were in Goa. Also, for putting us in touch with Vijay and his group that has made a world of difference for our trip I don’t know what our trip would’ve been like had we not had you two guiding us through this country thank you.
