An old Portuguese house depicting early Goan life. Old trinkets, furniture and labouring devices are doted around the house. I would have liked more time there but it was rushed as the tour was guided by electronic voice over machines. Too rushed really

A sound and light show walks you through how a real life Portuguese lawyer and his family lived a few hundred years ago. Several of the implements, vessels, practices and customs have a direct imprint on the Goan way of life today.
