Altinho

This is the hillock overlooking the city of Panaji. It is divided into two parts by the Emidio Garcia Road. It is the site of the "Bishop's palace" and is the residence of the Archbishop of Goa. Its construction was begun in 1886 and completed in 1894. It was constructed to reflect the elevation of the Archbishop to a patriarch.

It has an impressive coat of arms at its entrance that belongs to Goa's first Patriarch, Dom Antonio Sebastian Valente. The official Chief Minister's residence is also in the area and so is the tower of All India Radio station and nearby is situated the Government Polytechnic and the College of Pharmacy and government housing.
