Parra, one of the most beautiful and serene village abundantly bestowed with scenic beauty. The typically caju covered hills hedge the North-West from Assagao, Anjuna and Arpora in an emerald semi-circle. Otherwise Parra shares borders with Mapusa, Guirim and Nagoa.. It is situated 4km away from sub-district headquarter Mapusa and 12km away from district headquarter Panaji.
The undulating topography dissolves in the vast, fertile sandy plains and sprawls over 3.5 square kilometres of picturesque countryside.The array of coconut palm trees along the road bisecting the lush green paddy fields overlooking St.Anne church has become a world famous tourist spot and has featured in over 250 Indian and foreign films and magazines. Parra is also very famous for its sweet, red watermellons (Read The Story Of Watermelons By Manohar Parrikar).
Parra also happens to be birth place of Chief Minister Mr. Manohar Parrikar and visionary MLA and Dy. Speaker Mr. Michael Lobo. Parra Sarpanch Mrs. Delilah Lobo along with Panch members is constantly striving for the betterment of its villagers.Parra has seen most all round development and progress since 2012.

I am very happy to announce the launch of Parra Panchayat website for the convenience of our people. We have incorporated most of the information of public relevance on the website which should save a lot of their valuable time apart from educating them of various schemes available at the Panchayat which they can take advantage of.
Website will be regularly monitored and updated with latest happenings in the village and we welcome suggestions and inputs from the villagers to improve the same, I once again welcome all our villagers to take advantage of the information at your fingertips.
It gives me great pleasure to see the first panchayat website launched in my constituency is of my village, I am sure very soon all remaining Panchayat’s will too have their own Websites.
