Se Cathedral, Bom Jesus Basilica, Church of St Francis of Assisi (only church that holds paintings, artefacts, sculptures), Church of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception (oldest & most famous church in the capital), Church of St. Cajetan, Church of Lady of Rosary, St. Alex Church (huge church built by the village folks)- take your pick and drop by.
Goan food: Now, probably this is what you are looking forward to the most. Authentic goan food.
