Heritage Club

If you are a paleophile keen on learning more about your culture, the stories that surround the different villages of our state, the beliefs, practices and inscriptions that dot some of the most well-known monuments, then you’ve come to the right place!

  • The Heritage Club helps you explore Goa enjoyably. From discovering untouched waterfalls, finding monuments stuffed with history and romance to letting greenery erupt as you fling seed bombs across barren hills and mountains – we strive to bring a change by learning and educating others to come take this journey with us.
  • The heritage of Goa has long been a topic of interest. Yet, most of us lack sufficient knowledge about the blend of styles, languages and cultures that have trickled into our inheritance. We agree with Marcus Garvey, “People without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture are like trees without roots.”
  • We learn to unearth stories from the archives of our fore-fathers, explore prayer-sharing traditions in Konkani, at times Latin and Portuguese, taste some of the most mouth-watering recipes that this tiny state has given to the world, gain insight into home-made remedies that have passed down through generations, hear languages that flow like the sounds of the river, witness dances and many other elements of who we are and how we identify ourselves.
