MARGAO AND AROUND

Goa’s second most important city after Panaji, Margao (Madgaon) is the administrative and commercial capital of the South Goa district. Located nearby is Colva, one of the most developed beach resorts in South Goa. Inland from Margao, the villages of Loutolim and Chandor are home to several beautiful colonial palacios. Further east lies the small hamlet of Rachol, which originally was the site of an old fortress built by the Bijapur sultans.
