“Located on the banks of river Mandovi, Se Cathedral is one of the oldest churches in Goa. The Cathedral is dedicated to St. Catherine of Alexandria on whose feast day in 1510 Alfonso Albuquerque defeated the Muslim army and took possession of the city of Goa. Hence it is also known as St. Catherine's' Cathedral.” shares HolidayIQ reviewer Snehal Raibole.

“This was the best hotel stay ever in Goa and felt like one of the best vacations one could ever dream of anywhere in the world. There was no need to leave the property for anything as the adjoining Taj Fort Aguada offers a nice getaway even if you want to take a break from holiday village.” shares HolidayIQ reviewer Jasneet Bajaj.

6. Best time for trekking

“The journey to the falls through the Mahavir forest reserve is half the fun. Not that you see animals but the journey through the dirt tracks crossing gushing rivers and streams on a jeep is a scene from ads. You can swim in the cold waters of the pool to reach the bottom of the Dudhsagar falls or just sit on a rock and enjoy the water cascading down in a milky froth.” shares HolidayIQ reviewer Saibal Das.

7. The Shigmo festival
