Viceroys Arch Goa


The Viceroy's Posture constructed in 1599 by Viceroy Francisco da Gama was once the primary street for coming into Old Goa. It was designed as a funeral service to the success of Vasco da Gama, the popular traveler.
 
Francisco da Gama was the excellent huge son of Vasco da Gama and was the governor of Goa from 1597 to 1600. In 1954 the arch was rebuilt with Vasco da Gama's sculpture on the stream part and the sculpture of St. Catherine on the other part. A street causes the Mandovi Stream from the St. Cajetan Chapel and goes through the Viceroy's Posture. It is also known to have been one of the gateways of the Adil Shah Building and is created of laterite.
