Art & Culture

art cultureThe east is the east, the west the west, but the twain do meet in Goa. After all, where in the world would you find Christmas celebrated with as much zest as Diwali, or where fish curry and rice are eaten side-by-side with chouricos (Portuguese for sausages). Imagine yourself strolling amongst women full dressed in their saris wading through one of Goa’s numerous beaches, and then having the (mis)fortune of accidentally walking over a not so fully dressed person taking in the rays. Goa is indeed a bridge between the east and west, with Goans (NOT Goanese!) serving their role as bridge keepers or “Culture Brokers” between the two. In order to better appreciate Goa and its unique culture, history and people, we hope that you take some time to browse through the several sections listed below.
