The Location – Viceroy’s Arch Old Goa
The Viceroy’s Arch is situated in one corner and the Arch of Adil Shah’s palace on the other side. Upon visiting the Se Cathedral Church one needs to walk towards St. Cajetan Church and at the junction of the road, a signboard is displayed where the Arch can be seen just before the Divar Ferry Crossing.
In short, it’s a road leading from the river to the town for the people of Divar Island.
The Arch is an ASI protected Monument of National Importance.
Moreover, Goa was ruled by the Portuguese before India defeated and captured Goa, hence Goa is home to numerous Portuguese houses, churches, forts etc.
Old Goa is best known for its churches and convents from the Portuguese era. However, it also boasts this charming little arch that dates all the way back to the 16th century.
There is nothing much to rave about even though it is a picturesque heritage sight, hence one should not come specially to see. But do not miss this heritage sight if you are coming to visit the Old Goa churches.
