Churches of Goa

 

Old Goa

Most of the churches in Goa were built during the time of Portuguese rule, and many of them in Old Goa, which is today a World Heritage site. Goan churches are renowned for their interesting architecture which is a blend of two or more styles and influences.

 

Portuguese Houses of Goa

During Portuguese rule there was a period of 'inquisition" in which most of the Hindu temples were destroyed and churches were built in their place, often on the original site of the temple. The church plays an important role in Catholic Goa's social, cultural and religious life.

Today the churches are all part of the Archdiocese of Goa. The oldest church in Goa is the Church of Our Lady of Rosary on Monte Santo in Old Goa. The style of church at the time that this church was built is known as Manueline after King Emmanuel of Portugal. The churches that were built in the period between 1510 and 1550 are known as the churches of the early period.

Church Houses in Goa

A prime example of a church from this period is the Church of Our Lady of Rosary. The period between 1550 and 1660 is known as the Baroque period, and the best examples of churches from this period are the Basilica of Bom Jesus, the Se Cathedral, the Chirch of St Cajetan and the Augustine Church of Our Lady of Grace, which is now in ruins. The other architectural periods are the Rococo period from 1760 to 1899 and the Modern period, from 1900 to current times.

The following is a list of must-see churches in Goa
• Church of Our Lady of the Rosary
• Church of St. Francis of Assisi
• The Se Cathedral
• Basilica of Bom Jesus
• St. Cajetan Church
• Church of Our Lady of Immaculate Conception
• Chapel and Tomb of St. Francis Xavier

Goa Retreat

Yoga Retreat Goa

Yoga retreats in Goa is a relatively new concept of Resorts in Goa, obviously there is more than one example, but generally speaking, these yoga shalla / yoga training centre / beach resort, are offering an all included yoga holiday on goa beach.

Goa yoga holiday

A Goa yoga holiday usually includes daily yoga sessions delivered by yoga masters from around the world, fresh healthy food, shanti atmosphere, yoga and healing reading materials, and yoga classes for all levels.

Goa Retreat

Some goa retreats are used for yoga teacher training, and thanks to the fact Goa IS in india, and places like Pune, Rishikesh and Mysore are not so far, many different yoga discipline as Ashtanga and Vinyasa Flow or Hatha, Sivananda, Iyengar and Yin all can be found in Goa yoga retreats.

Goa Retreat Locations

The yoga retreat idea in Goa started blooming fast in the south Goan beach Agonda, the beauty and seclude of this amazing coast line attracted yoga trainers and healing masters of all sorts to Agonda beach village, Yoga, Mediation, Shiatsu Thai chi, Raiky and many other centres where founded.

Then came the professional yoga retreat, first as yoga master courses, and then the student followed the masters as they do, and goa retreat holidays become more and more common.

North Goa Retreats

After taking over Agonda beach the retreats idea moved onward, and especially down south Goa (but not only), Palolem beach, Patnem beach , Colomb Bay, and even little Cola beach are now offering some amazing Goa Yoga Holidays for all levels.

South Goa Retreats

South Goa beaches offer great yoga classes and goa retreat, these resorts are usually not directly on the beach, and built in a more western like settings.

The best time to visit Goa

or The most popular time to travel to Goa

The best time to travel to Goa is between November and March, when the weather is dry and relatively cool, the sea is calm and clear, and all the facilities, from resorts and restaurants to beach shacks and parties, are open for business.

Goa Season

December and January are the most perfect - and popular - months to visit Goa, almost 100% rain-free with lovely cool mornings and evenings and hot beach weather during the day. This is the lucky Goan's winter!

Although the Goa ‘scene’ has slowed, some big music festivals are now regular fixtures at this time of year, as well as the best outdoor parties and big name DJs headlining at club nights. The weekly flea and night markets in north Goa are also at their busiest, with plenty of bargains to be had once you’ve mastered the Indian art of haggling, plus live bands and entertainment.

Goans, whether Christian, Hindu or Muslim, embrace Christmas, festooning everything with tinsel, whilst local school children try out their carol singing for tourists on the beach. Having a slap up seafood lunch under the tropical sun is certainly one way to get into the Christmas spirit, and New Year is no different in Goa to anywhere in the world, except that you can party with the warm sand between your toes under a sky full of fireworks.

Goa beach resorts

However, in terms of crowds, it is the busiest time, so the best Goa beach resorts get booked up early (by October many of them are full for the Christmas/New Year period) and some of the beaches, particularly in the north, get very overpopulated. However, in the south of Goa there are still plenty of more peaceful, crowd-free Goa resort options at that time of year.

Goa Off Season

February and March are great months to be in Goa, as the beaches slowly empty of tourists and room rates become more reasonable. From April until the monsoon rains break in June, the weather gets increasingly hot and humid (you may want to ensure that your room has air-conditioning at this time of year) and some beach places start to close. However, many resorts offer great rates at this time of year and you will sometimes have the remoter beaches practically to yourself!

October can also be a great time to visit to see Goa, vivid green after the monsoon and mostly free from other tourists, although there is still some occasional rain.

Goa Monsoon

And then there is Goa monsoon. Almost like clockwork, within the first ten days of June, the rains arrive. By this time all the temporary beach hut resorts have closed up and been removed and the only options for accommodation and eating are guest-houses and cottages of a more permanent nature, self-catering houses and apartments, and the large hotels dotted up and down the coast.

However, the rainy months of June to September have lots to offer providing you don’t mind monsoon storms or expect a beach holiday. The vegetation is green and lush, the rice paddies are planted and the seas wild and stormy. With activities more restricted to eating at local restaurants, enjoying vibrant festivals including Ganesha, and watching nature run riot, you can experience Goa like a Goan. Just remember to pack your raincoat!

Goa Weather

The following table shows the general weather in Goa month by month. However it’s important to remember that these are only guidelines and the weather in Goa may be surprising - hopefully for the better.
