A town with history

Goa played a crucial role in the European conquests in the East. Although its origin is obscure, prehistoric rock art were found. In 1472 it was conquered by the Muslims on the local Hindu dynasty. Twelve years after the first Portuguese encounter by Vasco da Gama, it was conquered by Alfonso do Albuquerque Goa in 1510 (see picture). St Francis Xavier SJ, who went to the Far East, was buried here in 1554 in the local Basilica do Bom (see picture).
