Goa is a state in western India with coastlines stretching along the Arabian Sea. Its long history as a Portuguese colony prior to 1961 is evident in its preserved 17th-century churches and the area’s tropical spice plantations. Goa is also known for its beaches, ranging from popular stretches at Baga and Palolem to those in laid-back fishing villages such as Agonda.
Anand is a local legend, famous for its no frills but full-flavour seafood. The rava-fry coating is one of the most satisfying out there, the prawns invariably large and juicy, and the spicy combination of the two a finger licking, lick smacking treasure. Knock back some feni or Kings beer on the side.
If the Palacio offers fine dining from Goa’s history, this beef chilli fry cart provides punchy, rustic food for every day. We’ve tried a lot of chilly fry and this is one of the most consistent, friendly and full-power tasty. Perfectly located, it’s ideal to grab a bite on the way back from the Pernem (far north Goa) beaches.
he Fort Aguada is one of the largest and impressive forts preserved as one of the best known landmarks in Goan history. Its prominence has grown from the fact that its headland on which it is built offers a wonderful site for military architects due to its shielding of the vital sea access from the heart of the Portuguese territory thereby making it an ideal site for seaward as well as landward defense. The elimination of the Maratha threat and the acquisition of the New Conquest added more glory to its importance right upto the end of the 18th century when Goa's future borders were established. The most vital part of it was its impregnability to survive attacks by enemies through land or sea or simultaneously from both sides which often happened.
This museum, in a beautifully restored space within the 1627 Convent of St Monica, contains a collection of statues, paintings and sculptures.
