Goa was a Portuguese colony and it still retains its Indo-Portuguese culture and architecture in its festivals, carnivals, historical monuments, forts and museums. Goa is synonymous with fun and frolic.

A major portion of Goa is a part of the coastal region Konkan. The tradition here is a perfect blend of ethnic Indian Konkani and the erstwhile Portuguese.
