Beyond the beaches of Goa

26th Nov 2018

 

Goa and beaches go together just how Isprava and luxury homes in India go. However, that is not the only element that makes Goa a major tourist attraction. There is more to Goa than the beaches and the soothing shores. Evidently, the listed experiences that are beyond beaches are quite significant and invigorating. Here is what your next trip to Goa should include.

A tour of the Goan Heritage

A trip to Goa’s heritage churches, forts and venues is something that cannot be compromised on. Aguada Fort, Sinquerim Fort and the iconic Chapora Fort are some of the main places to visit in Goa.

Light a candle at Monumental Churches

Another feature that actively defines Goa is its impressive churches; present in every nook and corner. Besides the famous ones, lighting a candle at a local church is also an experience worth having.

Experience the Portuguese Charm

Laced with the then authentic colonial culture is Old Goa; once known as the most affluent city in Asia, Old Goa still harbours that sophistication today. Se Cathedral and the Basilica of Bom Jesus are two landmarks that definitely need a visit.

However, Panjim’s rustic neighbourhood exhibits the colonial Portuguese aura like no other place in Goa. The colourful houses, the distinctive architecture and the whole Portugal essence that one feels simply while walking through the quaint streets can be captured in true spirit. And while you are in that historic territory, visiting the Church of Our Lady of Immaculate Conception is almost mandatory.

Shop at the Flea Markets

Selling local souvenirs, funky jewellery, Goan fashion, classical home décor, handmade artefacts and more; the flea markets that grace Goa on Wednesdays and Saturdays are a delight to shop at. From Anjuna and Calangute Flea Market to Arpora Saturday Night Market, Goa has an array to choose from.

Test your luck at the Casinos

After living the day as a tourist in all terms, walking into one of Goa’s casino clubs and trying your luck is definitely an experience worth taking.

Dushsagar Falls

One of India’s tallest falls, Dudhsagar is a four-tiered waterfall poses as a border between Goa and Karnataka. The majestic falls make for a beautiful venue for nature-lovers.

Undoubtedly, Goa is beyond just beaches. There are archaic style churches and streets that replicate those of Portugal. There are appealing flea markets and a magnificent sight of one of India’s tallest waterfalls. There is peace and there is buzzing energy; exactly what made us build properties for sale in Goa in the first place.
