The Houses of Goa Museum, at Torda should be a must in everyone's itinerary. It celebrates the fascinating architecture of the houses of Goa, through the ages. The building of the museum itself is worth visiting, an impossible structure in a traffic island and yet it holds slices of the history of architecture in Goa. Designed and built by Gerard da Cunha. While you are there you can wander around the area and explore da Cunha's tribute to Mario de Miranda and an amphitheatre that has walls made entirely of glass bottles.
Museum open from 10.00 AM to 07.30 PM
No lunch break.
Closed on Monday
