Introduction

Goa's monuments like those elsewhere tell the story of  Goa's 1000 year  history. A lot of them have been built by the erstwhile Portuguese regime and are remnants of a colonial past. The really ancient ones that date to the pre-Portuguese era are but a handful largely because of systematic destruction by the Portuguese and early Muslim invaders.

Most of the monuments listed are protected and cared for by the Goa Government and also by the Archaeological Survey of India, who also maintain the Archaeological Museum at Old Goa. For a more comprehensive list of protected monuments, check out the page on the protected monuments of Goa.

Here are links to pages with details of important monuments organized area wise from the sightseeing perspective. Not listed here are Goa's Churches and Temples, monuments to human beliefs, trials and tribulations, that historically and even today, play a pivotal role in shaping Goa's cultural heritage; not surprisingly, each one of them has a story to tell.
