If there is one thing that makes Goa different from other parts of India then it is its East-West symbiosis giving it a special historical and social niche. The history of Goa tells a sweet and sour story of colonial heritage, oppressive rulers, a glorious culture, and uneventful immediate past. The city was captured and annexed to the Portuguese in 1510 following the surge of trade and demand of spices, and also cottons and indigo. As a land with an identity of its own, Goa was brought into focus when it was liberated from Portugal of its oppressive rule of about 450 hundred years, in 1961. Time and some amazing beaches made Goa a famous tourist destination. Enjoy beautiful beaches with a delicious Goan cuisine as daily buffet breakfast and dinner included provided arriving on time.
