Relive history

Built in 1503, St Francis CSI Church has stood here while the city changed rulers, and has passed through just as many hands. Legendary explorer Vasco da Gama was originally buried here, while his fellow Portuguese conquistadors Cabral, Albuquerque and de Almeida helped raise the chapel and fortify the steeple. Today it continues to court devotion for its magnificent architecture and old world design. And it even attracts a few business travellers seeking blessings for their big presentation.
