Vasco Travel Guide

The busy port town of Vasco da Gama, named after the Portuguese mariner and explorer who discovered the sea route to India 500 years ago, is a major shipping centre in Goa. Vasco lies 29 km southwest of Panaji, the capital of Goa. The port laps the shores on the western tip of the Marmagao peninsula, jutting into the Arabian Sea just around the mouth of the Zuari River. Vasco is strategically located as a transport hub for sea, air, and rail travel to Goa - about its only claim to fame according to intrepid Goa-goers. Travel to Vasco and explore the beauty of this port town yourself.
