- Ingo’s Saturday Nite Bazaar, Arpora.
It was the idea of longtime Goa resident and entrepreneur, Mr. Ingo Grill, who came to India in the 1970’s and saw enormous potential in turning the hot, dust-infested Anjuna flea market into a nice, clean, excellent Night market.
Today, it is a pleasant little world in itself, affording exceptional services and products to both sellers and visitors as well as being Goa’s prime shopping goal.
- Fort Aguada, and the lighthouse at the fort.
The fort was constructed in 1612 to safeguard against the Dutch and the Marathas. It was a connecting point for the vessels coming from Europe at that time. This old Portuguese fort rises on the beach south of Candolim, at the bank of the Mandovi river.
A freshwater spring within the fort produced water supply to the ships that used to stop by. This is how the fort got its name: Aguada, meaning Water. Crews of moving ships would often visit to provide their freshwater stores. On the fort stands a four-story Portuguese lighthouse, erected in 1864 and the distance of its kind in Asia. Built in 1612, it was once the grandstand of 79 cannons, a trench around the fort also protected it.
- Ancestral Goa or Big Foot, Loutolim.
Ancestral Goa is the first of its kind in India, an Open-air Museum-cum-parkland spread over 9 acres representing the culture and tradition of rural Goa around 200 years ago, in the form of life-size statues and Constructions.
In this model village, one can also see different miniature houses that showcase popular occupation and social classes such as fishermen, drinks shops, Goan artisans, farmers, the village market, and a “Feni” and “Urak” distillery.
The Legend of the Big Foot: Anyone passing on it, pure at heart, will be blessed with good luck.
In the middle of the Panjim city, Fontainhas rests simply over the bank the Ourem creek. It is an interesting old Latin quarter which has narrow roads and houses evoking the bygone era of Portuguese rule. The vintage houses with their typical blue Portuguese tiles, a smooth walk through the Fontainhas and a few minutes spent in front of the ancient chapel at one end is so clear that it might even bring you inner calm.
