Puducherry, the erstwhile French colony, is also popular for its churches, most notable among these being the Immaculate Conception Cathedral, the Domas Church, and the Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, popular for its rare glass panels depicting the life of Jesus Christ. All the churches are within 1 km of each other.
Those looking to have some fun in the sea should head to Serenity Beach for surfing at the Kallialay Surf School. Else, you could head to the seafront beachside promenade for a relaxed evening walk.
Keep an eye out for the numerous cafes that serve delicious French and South-Indian food. We recommend La Pasta World, the Domus Cafe, the Surguru Restaurant (South-Indian fair), Cafe des Arts (French food) and Le Club (multi-cuisine). Puducherry is particularly lively during Christmas, which is the best time to visit its pubs, notably the Villa Shanti, the Road Motopub, and L'e-Space.
