Photographer's Note

Old Goa was constructed by the Bijapur Sultanate (Bijapur is now in Karnataka) in the 15th century. It served as the capital of Portuguese India from the 16th until the 18th century when it was abandoned due to an outbreak of plague. It is a town of cathedrals, churches, monasteries, and nunneries. In 1986, the remains were proclaimed a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This view is from the north of the Basilica de Bom Jesus and in the direction of the Church of St. Francis of Assisi (just visible to the right in the photo) and the Sé Cathedral. Between these structures, there is a very pleasant park (Old Goa's main square) with trees furnishing welcome shade during the hours of daylight.
