Ancestral Goa Center Tours

6 Reviews
The Ancestral Goa Center, known by locals as the Big Foot Museum for its large foot-shaped dance floor, is one of the main attractions in the Goan village of Loutolim. Local artist Maendra Jocelino Araujo Alvares, the man behind the museum, created the mini nineteenth century Goan village to help preserve the culture and traditions of the region for generations to come.

For visitors unfamiliar with Goan culture, a visit to the Ancestral Goa Center offers a window into some of the area’s unique past times like brewing feni, a local spirit made from coconut or cashew fruit. The museum is also known for housing a giant sculpture of Sant Mirabai, the longest laterite sculpture in India.

If you’re in the area of the Ancestral Goa Center, be sure to pay a visit to the Miranda House, one of Goa’s oldest country homes, and stop in for a Portuguese-Goan lunch at Fernando’s Nostalgia, considered one of the best restaurants anywhere in the state.
