The Secretariat Overview

Ranked 2 of 2 sightseeing in Candolim Beach

The Secretariat in Panaji is located at a distance of about 11.5 km from Candolim Beach. It is considered to be one of the oldest buildings of Goa, which has the State Legislative Assembly of Goa. This place was once a palace to the Muslim ruler Adil Shah of Bijapur. It was later converted into Viceroy's official residence by the Portuguese in 1759.

This Islamic structure has undergone numerous renovations and now stands as a giant colonial building with sloping tiled roofs and iron pillars. Tourists can explore the carvings and an amalgamation of cultural architectural designs.
