The beauty of Salcette is in the many villages that make up this place and represent a lifestyle of Goa that is envious in its ease. Salcette features six comunidades, which include Benaulim, Curtorim, Loutolim, Margao, Quelossim, Raia and Verna. It is the anglicized version of Sassat which again means 66. A place that has been ruled by Hindu, Muslim and Portuguese rulers over the years, this is a place that reflects the diversity in the culture. Yet somehow it all comes together in being a part of South Goa with its beautiful beaches, wonderful cuisine and some of the beat sights that you will ever see. The reign of the Portuguese has influenced the culture of the region. Traditions of yesteryears are still followed by the inhabitants, Goud Saraswat Brahmins of Bengal and Christians. This is a place that is infliuences by everyone who has been a part of this culture. The Church of the Holy Spirit and the Rachol Fort are the prominent tourist attractions in Salcette and represent the Portuguese era quite clearly in this region. This is a place that receives the glories of the Arabian sea and the beauty of some of the best silvery beaches in teh are. On top of it all, it has a history so colourful. This is definitely a place to visit.
