Fountainhas is a quaint little part of the capital city of Goa, Panaji. When you cross the Old Patto Bridge over the Ourem Creek and enter this part of town, you suddenly feel as though you've time-travelled into Goa's Portuguese past.
|You can find people trying to catch a fish or two for supper|
The concept of Susegad hits you right on the face, and hard! As the Sunday Times once wrote- "Goa is South Asia's Latin Quarter, indulgent, tolerant, capricious, steeped in a tropical lassitude and wedded to the sea".
|Afonso guest house|
The beautifully maintained houses and buildings are painted in bright sunshine colors. Taking a walk around is quite very refreshing. You will be stopped by a friendly passerby or two, be asked where you're from. and when they realise you speak Konkani in a different accent, be very happy to offer tips and guidance.
|The prettiest board of a clinic that I've seen|
The narrow alleyways beckon me in as I walk around, not getting enough of the pretty sights.
I have already decided, on my next visit to Goa, this will be where I'll be staying, soaking in the delights Fountainhas has to offer!
