Overview

A haunted chapel, virgin coconut oil, a revolt …these are just three of the enticements for the questing visitors of The Three Kings Trail at Cansaulim. We promised you Goa with a twist and there’s definitely a twist in the tale of this lovely village sequestered in the verdant reached of South Goa. It’s not all about beaches you know. You will uncover the pleasures of bargaining at the Tinto, the Market Square, which is piled up with produce brought in from nearby villages …

What you will experience

The virgin coconut oil, we discover emerges from a special machine. In fact you can stand around watching how its squeezes out the purest form of the oil which is excellent and a good takeaway for family and friends too. The Raj-era transport system for the village is still very much in evidence.  In fact it will trigger of stories of how the Portuguese developed trade in this region with the help of the British. Oh yes! There are the tales of the legends of the village in its contribution to the liberation movement in Goa from Portuguese rule... Our meanderings next bring us to the oldest church in the village that once only connected by a waterway. The best for the last –  a hike up to Cuelim Hill where stands then the intriguing Three King’s Chapel, said to be the most haunted place in Goa. The story goes that the King Holger Alvunger was really not happy with the treaty that said that the territories of Goa would be shared by two other Portuguese kings.  One evening he invited Our Lady of Remedios Chapel, where he sneakily treated them to a poisoned supper. But he did not live to enjoy his victory for too long. Disgraced, publically humiliated and ashamed of what he had done, he drank the same poison and also died. Though all three kings were buried at the church itself by the villagers, it is believed their spirits are still restless and wander around the place.
