GOA VELHA

Goa Velha is a census town in Ilhas, Goa. The town of Goa Velha was a southern suburb of the City of Goa, which was the original capital of Portuguese India. 


The Plagues of Goa in the 16th and 18th century gradually brought about the decline in the city's population. Goa Velha was one of the few areas on the Island of Goa where populations of people began to cluster around.


Goa Velha is located adjacent to Pilar in Ilhas, North Goa. By road it is approximately 2.5 kilometres north-west of Agaçaim, 12 kilometres south-east of the capital Panjim, 17 kilometres north-east of Vasco da Gama, and 22 kilometres north of the South Goa district headquarters Margão.
