The walk begins Tobacco Square near the main Post Office in Panjim and then leads us into the heritage precinct of St. Thomas ward, passing the small chapel of Sao Tome. We visit the famous old 31st January Bakery, and then move into the Fontainhas area passing the chapel of St. Sebastian. This leads to a cluster of interesting buildings around Panjim Inn, Portuguese Foundation, and Galerie Gitanjali. We give you an exclusive insider access to visit a famous Goan musician and get insights into Portuguese influence on Goan music. Get mesmerized by Fado, Latin and Folk music performed by the musician. We then return to the Post Office by a different route highlighting the elements and places of interest that liven up the Latin Quarters in the evenings . Our presenters will highlight all the above places with fascinating history and anecdotes that are unheard of and will share a very unique perspective of the making of Fontainhas.
