Divar Ferry Road, Old Goa, India, 403402
Located on way to the jetty from the Church Of Saint Cajetan, the Viceroy's Arch is a charming stone structure, dedicated to the memory of Europe's most celebrated navigator, Vasco Da Gama. Constructed in 1599 by his great-grandson, Francesco Da Gama, this arch captivates onlookers with its curious greenish granite and laterite stone which stand out starkly against the blue sky. This monument contains the statue of Vasco Da Gama at one end and a statue of Saint Catherine at the other of the river. The Viceroy's Arch has Portuguese inscriptions on both sides of the inner walls of the Arch, one of which is an inscription dedicated to the Immaculate Conception Of The Virgin Mary. Very historic and picturesque indeed, this is a must-see for all tourists.
