St. Francis Church


St. Francis is a Roman catholic church which was built during 1503 by the Portuguese traders who came here following the same route as the renowned Vasco-da-Gama. The fact that the Vasco-da-Gama was originally buried here attracts thousands of travelers to this place even though his remains were sent to Lisbon 14 years later. Firstly the church had a simple wooden structure which was dedicated to St. Bartholomew. In 1506 the church was reconstructed and this time it has the structure in stone.
