For more than four-and-a-half centuries Goa was run as a Portuguese colony – the lynchpin of a vast trade empire stretching from Japan to Lisbon. As such, its major influences tended to come from across the sea rather than across its borders. Insulated from the rest of coastal India by tidal rivers and mountains, these influences subsequently took root and blossomed into a culture that was neither entirely Indian nor European, but something in between, with its own unique styles of architecture, cuisine and dress.
