A neighbourhood at “golden hour”

Building in the Portuguese quarter in Panjim, Goa, India

The Portuguese quarter of Panjim, Goa, India

A dozen or so blocks of Neoclassical houses with narrow lanes mark the eastern boundary of downtown Panjim, Goa’s capital city. Many have retained their coast of ochre, pale yellow, green or blue (or all four, in this case) – a legacy of the Portuguese insistence that every Goan building (except for churches, which are always brilliant white) should be colour-washed after every monsoon.
