  • I confess that I was disappointed with the arc of the Vice King, once knew him for photographs, for being a very publicized and used when he spoke in India and Vasco da Gama and appeared to be a much larger work and imposing. I'm not saying you should not visit, after all is a Portuguese heritage, but is little identified and is not much sought after tourist visits and the artistic level, offers nothing extraordinary. Who visit are mainly those who spend a day exploring Old Goa. Excursions give priority to other monuments and in my opinion very well. This Arc of the Vice‑Reis of Goa is a tribute to Vasco da Gama, under the initiative of your great-grandson d. Francisco da Gama, controversial vice‑rei of India between 1597 and 1600 and 1622 and 1628. When the sent celebrava‑se the first Centenary of the build output of the first Portuguese armada from Lisbon in 1497 and 1498 to reach in India. The arc of the Vice‑Reis results, because, the first celebration of the Sea made led by Vasco da Gama, having your figure in almost real size on the front of the arch facing the River, having been opened on Christmas day of 1597, allegedly for being on that day, in 1524, who died in Cochin the "Admiral of the Indies". The decision of staging the dock door honorific approved by Senate (Senado da Câmara), the project was handed over to the engenheiro‑mor Jules Simon, who took about half a year to fit this "portico". When it was built this Arc of the viceroys, had not the appearance we know today, as it was entered in the complex of the fortress of Goa, just as a use of a door of the wall of Islamic origin, today missing. It was built on the wharf or Port fortress of walls of Goa, that mediated the passage between the Terreiro do Paço and the terrace of the Vice‑Reis and the street Right, what made this arch triumphant, was never alleged used in solemn entries, such as the vice‑reis. Not work in your building time, but nowadays the your appearance is more like a small triumphal arch, missing the old constructions and after restoration by Baltazar de Castro, engineer of the Directorate-General of National buildings and monuments, due to the ruin of the arch itself in 1951. The restoration/reconstruction extended for years 1952 to 1954, according to the doctrine that practiced: return to original purity. So if remade the door, finally a triumphal arch, as it is now framed in the luxuriant Palm Grove that surrounds, with no wall behind and is the door to the island Divar or doorway in Old Goa, as the prospect. The arc of the viceroys once collapsed. Don't let a second time. Some cleaning and attention are required.

  • It is near se cathedral. Nice place for spending peaceful and lonely time. Nothing special about it. 
  • It is near to Se Cathedral so at your way you can check this out. Not sth extraordinary but while u r near, why not spent 30 more minutes and see it. :)

  • This is a heavily modified version of what the arch used to be during the Portuguese time. Once the main entry point to Goa, the arch now just serves as eye candy while making your way to/fro the ferry. Mostly ignored by everyone, it could be of some interest you are a history buff, and can read Latin.
  • An old historic arch straddling the road
  • Old historical sculpture made during the Portuguese rule in Goa. Worn out over the years. Nothing special there.
  • Just nearby BOM cathedral. Can be a quick visit
  • A must visit place in old Goa . A monument build by Vasco de Gama's grandson in memory of his grad father
