Houses of Goa Trail -Valpoi

₹ 1,499

The Goan houses have their own charm - People have often misrepresented the architecture as being Portuguese architecture - but there is so much more to Goa than that. Each one of them has a story to tell - the reasons they were built the way they were, the rains they have witnessed and of course , the stories that took place there. We venture on a unique mission with our series on Houses of Goa - to decode these secrets.  Listen to the sound of ladies singing at the grinding stone while nachni nods in the noonday sun. Stories of love for the land and one of the only two temples dedicated to Shri Brahma the lord of creation. Enjoy a rustic meal fit for a king,  watch while a man makes brooms, utensils and things and enjoy the history of Goa through thatched hut and moving memories with writer and researcher Heta Pandit.
