One of Goa’s important attraction are the magnificent churches which are largely a legacy of Portuguese influence. One of my must visit churches in North Goa is St Anne’s Church in Parra. Parra is a small village located close to the town of Mapusa & the villages of Saligao, Calangute, Assagaon, Anjuna & Vagator. The church was consructed in 1649 by the Franciscan Fathers that was made of mud and a thatched roof. This was burned down and reconstructed in the year 1688 and since then the church served as village church to all Porrikar’s of Parra – a village that used to be famous for Sweet & Red watermelons.
