South Goa Resorts

Goa huts

While at the north of Goa most beach resorts and beaches are crowded with youngsters that are seeking for action, in the form of parties, shopping and just being seen, you will find peace and quiet in the much more serene atmosphere of south Goa. Most of the beach resorts in south Goa concentrate on Palolem and Patnem beaches, while the slightly remote but rapidly developing Agonda beach is not falling far behind them. The resorts on those laid back beaches offer quite a few attractions for their guests, like professional Yoga retreats on their premises, day travels to nature reserves, farms and old cities, boat trips, and much more. The beach resorts on Palolem and Patnem are family and children friendly, and you will find rooms spacious enough and well equipped for a family of 4 or even 5 persons.

Churches of Goa

 

Old Goa

Most of the churches in Goa were built during the time of Portuguese rule, and many of them in Old Goa, which is today a World Heritage site. Goan churches are renowned for their interesting architecture which is a blend of two or more styles and influences.

 

Portuguese Houses of Goa

During Portuguese rule there was a period of 'inquisition" in which most of the Hindu temples were destroyed and churches were built in their place, often on the original site of the temple. The church plays an important role in Catholic Goa's social, cultural and religious life.

Today the churches are all part of the Archdiocese of Goa. The oldest church in Goa is the Church of Our Lady of Rosary on Monte Santo in Old Goa. The style of church at the time that this church was built is known as Manueline after King Emmanuel of Portugal. The churches that were built in the period between 1510 and 1550 are known as the churches of the early period.

Church Houses in Goa

A prime example of a church from this period is the Church of Our Lady of Rosary. The period between 1550 and 1660 is known as the Baroque period, and the best examples of churches from this period are the Basilica of Bom Jesus, the Se Cathedral, the Chirch of St Cajetan and the Augustine Church of Our Lady of Grace, which is now in ruins. The other architectural periods are the Rococo period from 1760 to 1899 and the Modern period, from 1900 to current times.

Goa, India

Travel to Goa, India

The extraordinary, abundant nature is one of the main attractions in Goa for the more than two million tourists that flock to this beautiful slice of the Indian coastline. Coconut palms, golden sands and warm blue waters on the shores. Dense green jungle, gurgling rivers and amazing waterfalls inland. Abundant birdlife (kingfisher sightings are common), domesticated buffalo walking freely along the roads and the ubiquitous cows on the beach make up some of the animal life one will encounter on a Goa vacation.

Traveling in Goa

A lone Portuguese outpost for more than 450 years, Goa was reclaimed by India as recently as 1962 and the evidence of this latter-day colonial rule is everywhere to be seen. Gorgeous (often crumbling) architecture, fusion cuisine, melancholic fado music and afternoon siestas make Goa unlike any other part of India.

Resorts in Goa

But Goa is also known for it's many lovely boutique beach hut resorts, world class restaurants and exciting nightlife. A restorative night's rest in a beautiful hut on a Goa beach, being lulled to sleep by the sound of the sea lapping the shore, is a must. Wake up to an early morning yoga class (a plethora to choose from), followed by wonderful fresh tropical fruit juices, and indulge in a day in the sun, frolicking in the Arabian sea. At night, delight in mouthwatering fresh seafood on any Goa beach, under the stars, and try some of the local brew, either coconut or cashew nut feni.

Goa Holiday

Although not without it's problems, sustainable tourism and the impact on the environment being the main one, Goa, India is still one of the most magical places in the world to spend a holiday, whether it be solitary, or with family or a romantic getaway.
