A testament to the wealth that passed through the port of Goa in the early-17th century is the splendid crop of Baroque churches and cathedrals just inland from the modern capital, Panjim. The most revered relic of the UNESCO World Heritage site, however, are the wizened remains of the Basque Jesuit missionary, St Francis Xavier, displayed in a glass-sided casket inside the Basilica of Bom Jesus. Try to arrive before breakfast to watch the first rays illuminate the domes and belfries of the deserted city from the terrace of Our Lady of the Mount.
