GOA TRAVEL GUIDE
Tourist Attractions: Beaches, Churches, Resorts
Best Time To Visit: September To April
Goa with its marvellous, unspoilt expanses of palm fringed beaches, warmed by the sun and the local hospitality, relaxed lifestyles enlivened by the love of music and dance and tantalising cuisine, makes a heady mixture too good to resist. More than 450 years of Portuguese rule preceded by Hindu and Muslim supremacy have made "Sunny Goa" an exciting amalgam of cultures. Imposing churches, forts perched on high promontories, delightful old mansions and villas and picturesque whitewashed villages set amidst velvety paddy fields are all a part of this exciting heritage.
