Panaji tours would take you to some of Goa’s most fascinating beaches and sacred shrines.

Dona Paula Beach
The palm-fringed beach of Dona Paula features prominently in tours of Panaji. The beach is named after Dona Paula de Menzes, the daughter of a viceroy during the Portuguese rule. The beach has come to be known as a favorite shooting destination for Bollywood movies. It is also a popular hub for various water sports.

Miramar Beach
The Miramar beach is located very close to the Panaji town. As such the beach remains overcrowded most of the time, with locals and tourists indulged in a multitude of activities. From the beach one can have a nice view of the Aguada fort across the river Mandovi.

Institute Menezes Braganza
The Institute Menezes Braganza is named after eminent Goan freedom fighter Menezes Braganza. The museum boasts of an eclectic collection of paintings, drawings and sculptures, most of them dating back to the Portuguese era.

Statue of Abbe Faria
Located centrally near the Secretariat building, this statue depicts Goan legend Abbe Faria hypnotizing a young woman. A veritable genius, Abbe Faria was a priest, scientist, revolutionary, and hypnotist all rolled into one. After completing his studies in Lisbon, Faria took part in the French Revolution. Faria’s contribution to the science of hypnotism is unrivalled and he was the first one to proclaim that hypnotic trances were a result of suggestion therapy.
