Archbishop's Palace, Goa
This double-storied wooden structure of the Archbishop house is a treat for the eyes. Wooden planks, wooden furniture, wooden banisters and staircase - all lend charm and grace to the structure. It is so serene, quiet and peaceful that you automatically tread quietly and slowly, admiring the antique furniture, the vaulted wooden ceilings, the rooms and the paintings on the walls. A visit well worth it.
