About Pernem

Pernem was under the rule of the Bhonsales of Sawantwadi until it was ceded to the Portuguese. Pernem offers visitors a glimpse of history and a chance to explore the coexistence of various religions. The culture of Pernem is quite different than that of the rest of Goa hence, festivals here are celebrated in a different manner as compared to the rest of the state.
