The city of Mapusa

Mapusa or, as it is also spelt, Mapsa (or Mhapsa), is a small remarkable town clustered around the Mount (Alto). This little cute town is located in Northern Goa and is a capital of the Bardez Taluk. Mapusa is situated 13 km from the capital of Goa – the city of Panaji, so you can easily and quickly reach it by bus or by a taxi. In fact the city of Mapusa is a popular tourist destination and a market town for the surrounding beach areas of Calangute, Candolim, Anjuna and BagaThe city of Mapusa.

The city has got its fame due to the age-old tradition of the so-called “Friday Market”. The name of Mapusa itself means “the market place” or “the trade”. As you can see from the title of the market, it takes place every Friday. Mapusa Market was first cited by a Dutch Chronicler in the end of the 16th century. He described this event as The "Bazaar Grande". The great popularity of Mapusa as a market center grew out of ancient festivals which were dedicated to the God Kanakeshwar Baba. The location of the Friday market at the center of commercial activity and its proximity to the religious site has caused this place to develop to its current scope and size.

Walking through the lively market gives you a great taste of the real Goa 'spirit'. Local citizens who are coming to the Friday market from all corners of Goa State suggest you to purchase their wares and goods. Sometimes it even seems like every street and every breathing space of Mapusa is occupied by cliques, tents, baskets and other stock-in-trade of sellers.

This colorful and vibrant market is usually opened from early morning till late night. Basically, it specializes on agricultural products like vegetables, fruits, plants and spices, but still you can also find lots of other useful (and not so much useful, but cute and amusing) goods there. The so-called ‘Fish Street’ is really much interesting and picturesque place: here you will be able to buy dried salted fish, usual dried fish, boiled fish, fish-grill, marinade fish and etc. You will be able to purchase the specialties of Goa local cuisine and cold drinks at the market as well.

If you are planning to spend your holidays in Goa resort, you should no doubts stake out a day to visit the Mapusa Friday market. Except this interesting place the city of Mapusa has lots of different shops which sell a huge variety of cheap goods. Of course, you wouldn’t find any brand-name shop there, but in small local stores you can find nearly anything you may only need. The number of hotels and guesthouses is limited, but the choice of restaurants and cafes to take a quick bite in is kinda satisfactory.

The city of Mapusa has few cultural and historical attractions. Such places of interest as Mascarenhas Mansion Palace – an excellent and amazing example of the wonderful Portuguese architecture, Our Lady Of Miracles Church, Hanumam Temple and ancient Athaide Municipal Library are worth visiting.
