From the Flap

Goa has captured the imagination of all those who visited this beautiful land. Valerie Rodriguez brings to readers the glorious history of India’s most laid-back destination preserved in churches, forts, traditional homes, villages and cities, its spectacular pageantry, colourful festivals, warm and gracious people, and mouth-watering cuisine.

The author has covered in this book its sunny beaches, the splendour of its quaint cities, towns and alleyways. Whether it is fun, adventure, spirituality or simply relaxation-each exhilarating experience has been covered most beautifully in this book.

A unique aspect is the inclusion of tourist maps and undiscovered places that the visitor can explore. These are mostly 4-5 hour getaways from the main attractions – places that are serene, quiet, less visited and far from the madding crowd.
