Goa, on the west coast of India, has a surprisingly rich history that derives mainly from its days as a colony of the Portuguese. This can be seen in the old forts and towers which dot the landscape, but the real riches of Goa are its lush forests, wonderful beaches and stunning landscapes. There is a small Muslim population here, and Goa has a reputation for being one of India’s most peaceable states.
