The city of Goa has always been a crowd-puller for both international and domestic tourists, and rightly so. From white sandy beaches to charming World Heritage sites, from quaint Portuguese cafes to a buzzing nightlife, the ‘Party Capital of India’ has something for everyone.
This historical city served as the capital of the Portuguese settlements for over 400 years in the 15th and 16th centuries, before it became an Indian state in 1961. The heavy influence of European sentiments and its blend with Indian traditions is openly visible in Goan culture.
