Museum
“Last but not least... My favorite of them all! A nonprofit arts education initiative, Sunaparanta aims to preserve Goa's artistic legacies, support local artists and art students, and provide a link between the Goan art community and national and international art communities. The center hosts regular art exhibitions, lectures, film screenings, and workshops throughout the year; its festivals and events often attract leading writers and artists from both India and abroad.”

Art Gallery
“Part of the Panjim Inn Hotel, Gallery Gitanjali extends much further than its allotted area on the hotel complex. Indeed, the owners have made the gallery’s work as much a part of the guests’ experience of the hotel as possible with the carefully curated selection of abstract oil and mixed media pieces, including collages lining the walls of the private guest rooms.”

Neighbourhood
“Located in Panjim, Fontainhas, also known as Goa’s Latin Quarter, is flanked by an ancient creek called Ourem Creek to the east and the Altinho hills with springs to the west. Fontainhas is best explored on foot, and strolling among its narrow cobbled streets will definitely transport you back in time. Marvel at the old Portuguese houses that date back to the 18th and 19th centuries. Painted in hues of green, pale yellow, and blue, along with red-coloured tiled roofs, artistic doors, and overhead balconies, you’ll instantly fall head over heels with the rows of traditional Portuguese houses and cottages that cover the narrow, winding landscape. There are cute little cafés and bakeries that are over 100 years old dotting the streets of Fontainhas. With colourful Portuguese-style houses and beautiful street art on the walls, the Latin Quarter itself is a wonderful work of art. Places to visit: Gitanjali Gallery - Contemporary art as well as a vast collection of Scandinavian art from the 1950s to ’90s. Velha Goa Galeria - Traditional hand-painted azulejos (tin-glazed ceramic tiles). Maruti Temple Fonte Phoenix (Fountain of Phoenix) - Natural spring. t Fontainhas festival (held in Feb) - Art and cultural festival in which the historic houses are transformed into art galleries with locals putting on display their artworks that showcase the Goan heritage. In addition to that, musical and dance events are also held. Where to eat & drink: Viva Panjim - Goan and Portuguese cuisine. Horse Shoe - Goan and Portuguese cuisine. Hospedaria Venite - Seafood and local Goan delicacies. Joseph Bar - Local Taverna Confeitaria 31 De Janeiro - Bakery”
