About Historical Places In Goa

Goa has one of the most rich and traditional heritages that stem from its Portuguese origins. There are several forts, churches and monuments you can explore in Goa on a historical tour here. One of the prime forts in North Goa is the Chapora fort that was built by Adil Shah, the king of Bijapur. You can explore the red laterite slopes and enjoy the view of the state from this fort.

Another fort that is historically significant is the Marmagao Fort that is about 33 kms from Panaji. This fort was one of the major hubs of intense maritime activity. Fort Terekhol is also quite a popular historical monument that served as a Portuguese maritime defence in the 17th century.

Among the historical churches are the Se Cathedral, the St. Francis Of Assisi Church, St. Augustine Tower or the Church Of St. Augustine and the Church Of Our Lady Of The Immaculate Conception. Besides this the Shri Shantadurga Temple in Kavlem, the Shri Mahalaxmi Temple in Bandora, the Aguada Fort, the Gate Of The College Of St. Paul, the Basilica Of Bom Jesus and the Cabo Palace are historical relics that you must visit on a trip to Goa.

      AEHOS booked me for my goa honeymoon trip from April 22 to 27. Now the trip. Away from the chaotic worklife, this goa trip did wonders. Forgetting my office work, and all the escalated tension, all the inquiries, and shutting myself in the calmness of goa beaches, the beautiful horizons, and listening to the winds, the splashing water for six days, and feeling numb - it was a blessing come true. From hotel room service (SoMyResort) to staff behavior to food quality, everything was splendid as I have been promised. Aeroplane Hospitality booked my trip at only 49k which is actually stupendous bearing in mind the plane ticket price these days, the 3-star hotel price , the AC-cab price, et cetra . I wonder how they are covering their profits, paying their staff. Such a nice service from Aeroplane Hospitality. Staff behavior as well remained excellent throughout the trip and even after that. Kudos for the team, Komal mam, Mohit Sir!

      Communication between us and TT was good via WhatsApp, that's thumbs up for them. But communication between TT and Hotel was not up to the mark. The Hotel did not receive the communication towards the payment and so we were kept waiting for half an hour . The pick up was taking us to the wrong hotel as he had wrong info . The drop back to the airport also gave us anxious moment as the driver had no clue who was paying for the drop, though the drop was in the package. The Hotel Resort Rio was wonderful and we got a good package from TT ( Aero hospitality).
