The walk is a must visit event for anyone who's looking for something fun and different to do in Goa, especially for those who're interested in history and architecture.
Though known for its beaches and its exciting party culture, Goa is home to some of the most interesting architecturally and historically interesting buildings. The stark difference between Goan culture and the popular culture of other Southern states is easily visible in the architecture that the state houses. For a history or architecture buff, Goa is a pandora's box, where one can find the best of gothic, European, Portuguese and even Dutch influenced architecture.
