Into oza kuyenza

The walk begins Tobacco Square near the main Post Office in Panjim and then leads us into the heritage precinct of St. Thomas ward, passing the small chapel of Sao Tome.

We visit the famous old 31st January Bakery, and then move into the Fontainhas area passing the chapel of St. Sebastian.

This leads to a cluster of interesting buildings around Panjim Inn, Portuguese Foundation, and Galerie Gitanjali.

We give you an exclusive insider access to visit a famous Goan musician and get insights into Portuguese influence on Goan music. Get mesmerized by Fado, Latin and Folk music performed by the musician.

We then return to the Post Office by a different route highlighting the elements and places of interest that liven up the Latin Quarters in the evenings .

Our presenters will highlight all the above places with fascinating history and anecdotes that are unheard of and will share a very unique perspective of the making of Fontainhas.
Other things to note
The experience may not be enjoyed by infants and toddlers.
We suggest you to bring your own water bottle, preferably a reusable water bottle as we would like to minimize the usage of single use plastic products.
Wear comfortable footwear and carry a Hat/ Cap.

A beautiful walk thru the lanes of Fontainhas, and great story telling by the host ! There were light showers and the host was thoughtful and got everyone umbrellas. Felt like a magical and colourful walk thru history.
