Welcome to Inland Bardez & Bicholim
There’s not as much to explore in North Goa’s interior as there is in the central and southern parts of the state, but with your own wheels you can leave the beach behind for a day or two and head east into the districts of Bardez and Bicholim. There are some fine old churches, sleepy villages, forts, little traffic and it is a part of the Goan countryside that relatively few tourists see.
On the Mandovi, east of the national highway, is the pretty riverside village of Britona, with its grand old parish church. In nearby Pomburpa and Aldona villages are two more notable churches worthy of a visit.
