Scope of 'Heritage Walk' As a Tourism Product in Goa
Abstract: Goa is India's smallest state by its geographical area and the fourth smallest by population. Tourism is its primary industry and Goa is famous for beach Tourism. Goa's past as a Portuguese colony has lent it a unique architectural style and ethos. There are many impressive heritage monuments and structures in Goa. Since the Portuguese ruled Goa for centuries, many churches, Temples, houses, forts and other structures bear a striking element of the Portuguese style of architecture. These heritage sites can provide endless source of material for heritage tourism. This study identifies important heritage sites in Goa and various "Heritage Walks" offered in Goa for tourists by Goa Tourism Development Corporation and private tour operators. The main purpose of this study is to examine the scope of "Heritage Walk" as a tourism product in Goa.
