FEATURED TOURS
Highlights of the Museum of Christian Art
This guided tour takes you on a journey from the early days of the Portuguese in India to present day Goa through the museum’s collection of unique objects and contemporary exhibitions. Here we will take you through the finest examples of five centuries of Indo-Portuguese imagination and the intense artistic productivity of the Indian craftsmen of that period.
The morning tour starts at 11 am and the afternoon tour at 2 pm and lasts about an hour. Schedule a date and time for your Museum Highlights guided tour from our Book Tickets page.
Retracing Monte Santo (the Holy Hill Tour)
Join us on a two hour specially curated walk of the Holy Hill (or Monte Santo), in Old Goa, where we take you through the ruins of the imposing Augustinian Monastery, and let you soak in the blue interiors of the Royal Chapel of St Anthony. Stroll down the historic pathway that connects the Augustinian monuments through the flying buttresses of the Church of Santa Monica. While listening to enthralling stories about the cloistered nuns who once lived in the Convent of Santa Monica, explore the hidden artistic treasures discovered during the restoration of the Church and take a short walk-through the highlights of MoCA. And finally, marvel at the navigational influences on the Manuelian styled Church of Our Lady of the Rosary set against the dramatic backdrop of that river that enabled Old Goa to become a great global trading center of the 16th century.

The walk is aimed at students of art, architecture and history and anyone who is interested in being introduced to the heritage of Old Goa. This is ideal for groups of 15 or more. Schedule the date for your group tour from our Book Tickets page.
