Cidade De Goa is located on Vainguinim Beach between a green hill and the deep blue sea – the sort of setting that can turn even the most ordinary person romantic.

The bright murals and the statues of Vasco da Gama in his three facets as an Adventurer, Statesman and Philosopher, along with the fountains further enrich the character & the ambience.
