the walk in the area is nice. A mixture of restored old colonial buildings with some modern. A mix of some nice, some not so nice. A great hour walk around the area and there are several nice spots for lunch/dinner.

After seeing pic of building intially thought it's museum but Fontainhas is name of area, many Portuguese buildings next to each other so it looks typical Portuguese colony. The building pic which is shown in DP is Geetanjali art gallery in that colony

One of the last heritage residences in the Capital Panjim . Has a relaxed charm around it. Nice houses painted in soothing colours and small garden spaces with a small Chapel

Even though this place is a small area within Panjim , the moment you step into this quarter , the Portuguese old world feel pulls into into a different age ... it’s quite close to central Panjim and hence is an easy walk too ......More
