Braganza Mansion

At 450, this is one of Goa’s oldest houses in the village of Chandor and was built by one of its richest families – as the Ming Dynasty vases, the crystal chandeliers and the vast collection of antique furniture reveals. Though the families still live there, they are open to giving visitors a tour and explain the history of the house. The gun holes which were used for defence against attackers in the olden days are still intact.
