Cotigao Wildlife Sanctuary
Acclaimed as the second largest wildlife reserve in Goa, the Cotigao Wildlife Sanctuary was set up in 1969. The sanctuary is better known for the lush green vegetation than wildlife species. The Nature Interpretation Center in the sanctuary was started by the forest department to impart knowledge to tourists regarding wildlife.

Cabo da Rama Fort
Also known as the Cape Rama fort, this fort derives its name from Ram, the prince of Ayodhya in the epic Ramayana. The fort was occupied by the Portuguese from the king of Soonda in 1763. Even though most of the Cabo da Rama fort is in a state of dilapidation, the beautiful church of Santo Antonio located inside the fort is still functioning.

Mallikarjun Temple
Built by the ancestors of the Kshatriya Samaj in 16th century, the Mallikarjun temple was later renovated in 1778. The Mallikarjun temple is dedicated to Lord Mallikarjun, an incarnation of Lord Shiva. The temple is particularly famous for a number of colorful festivals observed on auspicious occasions. During the annual zatra, the idol is taken out in procession and bathed in the nearby sea.
