Visiting this quiet quarter of Goa is like stepping into a painting of a European town. The streets are winding and pretty, coursing through houses colored in muted yellows and blues and pinks. Overhead balconies project out into the street. Make sure to stop by the neighborhood's namesake, the Phoenix fountain, laid down by the man who founded the area, Antonio Joao de Sequeira. Make sure to try the beef samosas and prawn cutlets sold by street vendors. The post office here used to be the local tobacco trading house. The square in front of it used to be the site of executions. Close by, you should check out the Chapel of St. Sebastian and also the Maruti Temple.
