Of all the colonists India has had, Goa was the sole territory of the Portuguese, whose cultural influences have trickled down and embedded themselves in the roots of the region, and can be seen even today in Goa and amongst Goans world over. It’s not just the sun, sand and serenity, Goa is bright and colourful to look at, but it’s on closer observation that the fine detailing and intricate layers of the place come to the forefront. Known for its beaches, party scene, hippie hang-out and a shift of lanes from the fast track to ambling along with afternoon naps, Goa is on almost everyone’s to-visit destination list. Come to Goa for its beaches, the delicious food, letting your hair down, to rest, and most of all to understand how living is so much better than just being alive. But that’s not all. The culture of Portugal is not just prevalent in the lifestyle, food and arts, but also the architecture. The old city has pretty pearls that masquerade as buildings, houses and churches that draw attention to the history that is embedded within its walls.
