The Church on the main square, the Baroque architecture, pretty villas, beautiful streets and interesting buildings give Panaji a distinctly Portuguese ambience. This beautiful town of Panaji lies along the left bank of the Mandovi River, piled up against terraced hills, white churches and a riverside promenade that is perfect for an evening stroll. The Old Portuguese quarter of Fontainhas, churches, narrow streets, quaint taverns, small pubs and bars, all these and much more take you back in time. Shopping is a delight in Panaji, Besides the up-market boutiques, you can pick up local handicrafts, Indian antiques, restored antique furniture, wood carvings, terracotta pottery, embroidered items, and jewellery and leather products from shops in town.
