Vintage Portuguese homes with ornate architecture adorn this area that is home to the lesser known East Indian community. These forgotten by lanes take you back in time, when colourful quaint homes quietly lay within fruiting orchards. While the orchards no longer exist, you will still be charmed as this 400 year old hamlet is complete with vintage architecture, split-level coloured houses with staircases, dexterous woodwork and sloping brick roofs. A twice fruit bearing mango tree, century year-old Goan clubs, a 125 year-old oratory dedicated to saint of epidemics and infectious diseases, or a historic perennial well that has a unique cultural significance – Matharpacady is seeped in history and stories that has given it a grade III heritage structure status. With modernisation and real estate costs explosions, small quaint bungalows are now giving way to monstrous contemporary buildings, thus robbing the village a little of its former magnificence.
