Menezes Braganza house, Chandor

the longest Portuguese mansion in Goa,is in the old capital of Goa, Chandor…the house was built in the 17th century and at present the 14th/15th and 16th generation of the Menezes Braganza family…i had shot a tv commercial in this lovely mansion many years back and the grand ballroom stayed with me…so on a trip recently exploring the countryside,i decided to pop in and check out the ballroom…the lady is the present matriarch of the family,the 14th generation…she is doing a great job keeping the mansion in liveable condition,though the ballroom does need a new ceiling:)the painting is on glass from some artist in japan,brought in the past century…do visit and support the family if you are in Goa anytime…
