Along with endless beaches, Goa is also dotted with beautiful old buildings reminding us of the Portuguese who ruled Goa for 450 years.
Goan mansions, Menezes Braganza House and Palacio De Deao reflect a dozen historical upheavals. But more than anything they reflect the arrival of the Portuguese in 1510 and their stay in Goa till 1961. The Goan craftsmen however worked their mischievous artistry to sneak into Christian idolatry their own primal cult figures. They joyously moulded the Madonna's as bosomy as their primal Laxmi's (also spelt as Lakshmi's), their Christ's as angular as the Himalayan Sadhu. They blended Mediterranean flora, grapes and vines, with Indian fauna, elephants, tigers and lions.
Enjoy traditional delicious home cooked meal (lunch) with mineral water at Palácio do Deão.
