35 Doors and Windows in Panjim’s Latin Quarter Fontainhas – Goa, India

35 Doors and Windows in Panjim's Latin Quarter Fontainhas - Goa, India || The Travel Tester
Follow The Travel Tester on a walking tour of the Latin Quarter in Panjim and discover some pretty incredible doors & windows.

Panjim (or Panaji) is the capital of the Indian state of Goa. You can find it on the banks of the Mandovi River and with its terraced hills, buildings with balconies and red-tiled roofs, churches and riverside promenade, it has quite a relaxed feel to it.

While there are many parts to Panjim, the most characteristic has to be the narrow streets of the old Latin Quarter Fontainhas. Here, you can still see and feel the Portugese influence. Today, I’d love to take you on a visual walking tour of the area and show you some of the most Pinterest-worthy doors and windows that I found.

DO GOOD || The Travel Tester

Did you know that in India, 577 million people (44%) don’t have access to adequate sanitation and 105 million people (8%) don’t have access to safe water? Over 87,000 children die every year from diarrhoea caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation – which is absolutely unacceptable in our opinion.

Just a Drop work with rural villages in the regions of Madhya Pradesh and Tamil Nadu with water supply and distribution schemes. Safe water, improved sanitation facilities and knowledge of safe hygiene practices leads to improved health, better education, secure food sources, improved rights for women, income generation and greater prosperity. It completely transforms lives.

    Hey Nick & Nienke,

    This is such a creative and lovely post :-) I love how you captured Goa so beautifully. I hope you had a good time in India. Have you visited any other place while you were there?
