What remains is a rich tapestry of cultures fused together in harmony to create an interesting living vibrant town full of character. Once again the Fort is passing through a period of renaissance as its architecturally fascinating colonial buildings are restored to provide, wonderful restaurants, chic boutiques and first class accommodation for the increasing number of visitors drawn to this United Nations designated World Heritage Site – by day wander through the labyrinth of streets and search out a special souvenir of a wonderful holiday. In the evening join the locals for an impromptu game of cricket or take a romantic stroll along the ramparts in the balmy onshore breeze that blows off the Indian Ocean, sit and make a wish as the sun sets over the horizon in another magnificent blaze of colour.
