Verem Village, Goa
The village of Reis Magos, also known as Verem is on the southern side of Pilerne. It is just opposite Miramar on the other side of the Mandovi. In the estuary of this river, during low tide, the villagers go to catch cockles, mussels and oysters. It has a cool refreshing coastal belt between the hillock of Nerul and the Mandovi where the villagers of the neighboring villages bathe. The Franciscans who had their rectory there in the 17thcentury baptized the primitive inhabitants. The navy acquired the full hillock on the eastern side of Reis magos and have taken possession of the quay at Verem.
