Day - 2 of 3 Days in Goa Itinerary
Day – 2 of 3 Days in Goa Itinerary

On day – 2 in Goa Itinerary for 3 days, we will head to Churches of Old Goa (Goa Velha).

To draw your attention – 

Goa Velha is a Portuguese Word, likewise as Old Goa in English. 

Nueva Goa would be New Goa.

Day – 2 of Goa Itinerary for 3 days

Day – 2 will be going to be funfilled as well. 

Not a tired exploration but, I would say a special one for sure.

For this day, I would recommend you rent a two-wheeler. If by chance you are staying somewhere around Arambol.

The Arambol to Old Goa distance is 50 km approx.

OR

Alike, Panjim to Old Goa distance is 10 km approx.

On the other hand, if you wanted to travel by bus, then you can get a Goa local bus from Mapusa to Panjim to Old Goa.

The only reason that I had mentioned a two-wheeler, particularly for this day, is that I don’t want you to miss any of the ongoing points.

And eventually stopping while on the way to Old Goa.

Furthermore, Old Goa would be a new place for you aside from the beaches & you would like to utilize your every hour of the day productive there.

But the direction to Old Goa is damn pretty, crossing the bridge and a lot of awe-inspiring places.

The streets of Old Goa will make you feel energetic because of the pretty tones.

If you’re proceeding from the northernmost portion of Goa like Arambol. You will get to cross two bridges –

  1. One from Mapusa towards Panjim
  2. Another from Panjim towards Old Goa

Parking Spots Outside the Old Goa Churches

There is plenty of space available to park your two-wheeler outside the Goa churches.

Especially when you’re visiting on the weekends, the availability of space outside might become an issue for you. The Old Churches attracts a lot of visitors, including international tourists.

So, make sure to leave early in that case.

There are plenty of markets in the surroundings, & don’t forget to buy Cashew Nuts from Goa.

The Cashew Nuts had become the best thing to buy in Goa to take back as a memory. Try the Colored ones!

I will be moreover talking about some of the churches in Old Goa. I had explored the Churches during Christmas time.

Yes, I went to the Old Goa churches during Christmas. The vibes around the surroundings are unmatched.

I agree that Old Goa Churches are must-visit places in Goa in 3 days. 

Please Note – I will not brief you on the history of the Old Goa churches. I don’t think that I am the right person to do that. I can share my experience with Y” all for a pleasant & informative Itinerary for Goa for 3 days.

1.Se Cathedral

The Se Cathedral Church is the only church where I had spent a lot of time inside. 

I had attended Churches on just a handful of occasions in Delhi. 

So, during my visit to the Se Cathedral Church. I was simply sitting & admiring the interior architecture of the church.

Since it was the day of Christmas. The Churches on the day of Christmas were enhanced wonderfully.

For your information, if you hadn’t attended a church before – There are no entrance fees to visit the church.

Furthermore, the churches in Old Goa are within several minutes of walking distance from each other.

So you can park your two-wheeler at one corner & can explore the Old Goa churches.

2.Basilica of Bom Jesus

The churches and convents of Goa come under the world UNESCO heritage sites list.

The Basilica of Bom Jesus is a World Heritage Monument. The architecture of the church is told to be the best example of Baroque Architecture & Portuguese Architecture.

There’s also an art gallery at the Basilica Bom Jesus Church. The entrance ticket to visit the art gallery is Rs.5 per person.

I believe in your Goa Itinerary for 3 Days, the 2nd day would be a significant one. 

I honestly tell you, I had consumed most of my time around the 2-3 churches of Old Goa. Snapping pictures & spending some time appreciating the environment. 

You can further go on to visit the remaining churches. I had given the reference links here – 

    1. Church of Our Lady of the Rosary
    2. Church and Convent of St. Francis of Assisi
    3. Chapel of St. Catherine
    4. Church of St. Augustine, Goa
    5. St. Cajetan Church

The entire 3 days in Goa would be memorable but, the visit to Old Goa churches would be a cover page of your complete Goa trip scrapbook.

You can undoubtedly spend your entire day exploring the churches of Goa. 

I am leaving you here so that you can enjoy yourself freely. 

You already grasp what step you have to take further.

Hint, On day-3, we will be going 60km approx., from Old Goa to another place in our Goa Itinerary for 3 Days from My Adventure of 30 days.
