Braganza house, a mansion in South Goa was built in the 17th century that stretches along an entire side of the village square in Chandor. Although located slightly inland, the mansion is well worth the travel. This land was granted to the Braganza family by a Portuguese king, who built a glorious mansion that later was inherited by the sisters of the family. Braganza House is a 450-year-old mansion with decor to complement its beauty. It houses stunning antique handcrafted teak and rosewood furniture, draperies and paintings placed beautifully all around. The ceilings too have been hand painted and give the house a regal appeal. A splendid library with a collection of over 5000 books is located in the west wing of the mansion and draws several visitors every day.
The mansion spreads over an area of almost 10,000 square metres and is a grand sight to behold. It is believed that some of the artefacts in the mansion were presented to the family by Dom Luis, who was the king of Portugal during the 19th century. The coat of arms of the last Royal Family of the Portuguese, which was a title bestowed upon the family by the king, is also visible in the ballroom of the house.
