Goa Travelogue Day 3

It was our last day in Goa. We wanted to explore south Goa before heading to the airport. We went to Basilica of Bom Jesus which was situated in Old Goa. Bom means 'holy' or 'good'. The basilica holds the mortal remains of Saint Francis Xavier, whose story has become a legend in Christendom. The church is more than 408 years old. If you want a guide to show you around the church, it will cost you a hundred bucks. Our guide showed us around and told us the long history of the church. I did not understand half of it because he was speaking too fast.






Later we went to Goa Archeological Museum which was just across the road. It is a part of the church of St. Francis of Assisi. It has a wide display of the portraits of viceroys and governors, sculptures, pillars and many objects that belong to the Portuguese period of Goa.



We also visited Dona paula and Miramar beach. Miramar was beautiful. It was the least crowded of all the beaches we visited.
