Booking for : Liquica

Liquica

Destination Details

Liquiça was a main centre when Timor Leste was under Portuguese rule. There are many architectural administrative buildings left. Most of these are in a dilapidated state but still show the grandeur of their day. After the Portuguese left in 1975, Timor Leste was occupied by the Indonesians. In 1999, after a referendum sponsored by the United Nations, the Timorese people chose independence from Indonesia. Violence erupted soon after resulting in destruction of most of the country’s infrastructure and many deaths. Liquiça was hit particularly hard as it was close to the base of the Militia. At one time the people of Liquiça gathered in the church to hide from the Militia but they were discovered and massacred. This church is still in use today.
on my way

On the way to liquica you can also stop and buy some locally produced organic salt. This laborious process yield coarse sea salt that has been exposed in salt pans and then further cooked to reduce impurities. 2 dollars will buy a kilo of this salt (which can be used for cooking and also as a bath salt) that comes ready to travel in a woven palm container (kaut).
