Margao

Margao is Goa's second largest city. It is also a commercial and industrial center. The main square is also called the Praca Jorge Baretto.

The historical Largo de Igreja, the Church square, lies a few Kms north of the Praca Jorge Baretto . It used to be Margao's colonial quarter. The square is surrounded on three sides by beautiful old buildings and on one side by the beautiful Church of the Holy Spirit.

Located a block northeast from the Largo de Igreja is the famous 'House of Seven Gables' or 'Sat Banzam Gor'. This beautiful mansion was commissioned in 1790 by Sebastino da Silva, a high ranking Portuguese official. Today only three of the seven gables remain.


The road from the Largo de Igreja winding up towards towards another Margao landmark is the Calcada de Nossa Senhora de Piedade. It leads up to Monte Hill. It offers a spectacular view of the Salcette countryside in general and Margao in particular.
