St. Francis Church
Imagine a wooden church built by the first European missionaries who landed in the state. It’s now a white stone structure that once held the remains of the Portuguese explorer, Vasco da Gama. See the tomb stones and inscriptions left here by the Dutch, walk around the church to get a feel of the architecture and the place.
