Located in the Salcette region of South Goa, the small town of Loutolim is home to one of Goa’s most interesting tourist attractions. Dedicated to recreating and showing visitors the way people used to live in this place in the past, the Ancestral Goa Museum is something which every tourist must take time out to go and visit. The Ancestral Goa Museum is an extensive catalogue of all the different aspects of the lives of those who stayed in Loutolim during the time of the Portuguese, as well as the mixture of these contrasting lifestyles. Another great reason to visit the Ancestral Goa is the reason why it attracted the nickname “Big Foot.” This name comes from a giant foot print which was discovered on a rock. This has led to a large number of people coming here as well as the surrounding environs of Loutolim. This region, unbeknownst to many, is also home to some very rare, indigenous reptiles and birds.
