Goa is totally different from the rest of India. This is a small region quite easily explored, both in terms of landscape - rich in jungle-covered hills, and in terms of cultural influences which prevailed today over 400 years of Portuguese domination. And in terms of religion, although hidusii occupy two thirds of the population, the people of Goa are more liberal than any other part of India.
Goa impresses primarily through its unique combination between west and east, a fascinating relic of white churches, shaded by palm trees, impressive temples, cathedrals Iberian impressive, always crowded bazaars, colonial buildings and cobbled squares, sunny, flanked by colorful flowers. Cultural mix is evident through the various festivals that take place here - Carnival, Christmas, Diwali and Durga Puja, all celebrated in traditional style chase. And if you add calm atmosphere, good food and excellent winter climate, we understand why Goa attracts more and more tourists from all over the world.
