This magnificently furnished mansion has housed the Braganza family for 450 years. The family martriache guides you through the opulent rooms of especial beauty is the house chapel. Not to mention the belgian crystal chandaliers. A fascinating insight into ancestral goa.

A well preserved 450 years old mansion with an abundance of handcarved furniture, Chinese porcelain, Belgian mirrors, silver and much more. If Judith is your guide, you will be very well informed and have all your questions answered.

If you a history or art buff, pls do not miss this. This is a gem, a hidden marvel in the village of Chandor. As many have said earlier, there are 2 parts to the house and both need to be viewed independently, and you need to pay your contribution too separately at each place. As you face the front... More

What a lovely experience! A trip down the memory lane of Goan history and the Portuguese era that existed. Its amazing how people lived then and how difficult it must be for their families to simply maintain and help these houses survive. A house full of old relics, beautiful tastefully done furniture and architecture, where so many must have danced,... More

We visited both the Perreira and Menezes sides of the house. On the Perreira side, the welcome was kind and the gentleman who showed us around spoke good English. Relics of a bygone era are poorly displayed, and some history was provided. It is in relatively poor condition and the displays of dubious value in any context. The Menezes side... More

A wonderful heritage house property that is open for visitors. We visited one late morning and found the lady very welcoming. The house is divided into 2 sectors and the right hand side (as you face the door) is more grander and well maintained. This is the Menezes Braganza part. A wonderful lady took us around proudly explaining each room,... More

We were a bit disappointed from the state of the house. Saying this a member of the Pereira family took us around the main rooms of the house (the one on the right when you arrive on the landing area) and explained a bit about contents and history. It was rather interesting but to be frank, nevertheless I wasn't expecting... More
