Churches and Convents of Goa

Brief Description
The former capital of the Portuguese Indies, the churches and convents of Goa illustrate the evangelisation of Asia, particularly the Church of Bom Jesus, which contains the tomb of St Francis-Xavier. These monuments had an influential role in spreading forms of Manueline, Mannerist and Baroque art in all the countries in Asia where missions were established.
