Villages

Goa and villages! Don't be surprised. Goa is essentially a village state with 347 villages as compared to 44 towns. Behind all the modern beaches and trance parties is that Goa which is close by yet so rural, so untouched.

At the core of this hot tourist destination and modern beaches is a rural Goa and the heart of every Goan is essentially a villager.

Whichever part of the earth they might travel, their heart remains connected to the roots. Goan villages by and far are better than other villages in India. They might not fit into that mental picture which comes to your mind with word 'village'.

Goa VillagesGoa has one of the highest literacy rates in the country and education and civic sense reflects in them. Though villages in Goa these days are having the trouble with garbage disposal. Goan villages are generally densely packed with houses. Alleyways broad enough to pass a bullock cart separate the houses, however more than bullock carts you will spot scooters.

It comes as a surprise to many but the people of Goa, the Goans, are very attached to their villages, their Goa villages. Despite Goa becoming a hot tourist spot across the entire world, it has not been able to change the love the Goans feel towards their Goa villages.

Though commercial hubs catering to the needs of the tourists have managed to creep into many Goa villages, the Goans still try to keep their Goa village culture in tact. All this comes out very clearly in a recreated village called 'Ancestral Goa' which is situated in Loutolim.
