Old Goa

Goa was the former capital of the Portuguese territories in India. Belfries, baroque church facades and other artefacts of Portuguese colonial history remain in Old Goa’s preserved pedestrian enclave.

The churches and convents, particularly the Church of Bom Jesus, which contains the tomb of St Francis-Xavier, illustrate the evangelizing zeal of Portuguese Catholics.

These monuments show Manueline, Mannerist and Baroque influences which the Portuguese missions spread into all the Asian regions they colonised.
