View of the official residence of the Governor of Goa, Daman and Diu, from the Lee-Warner Collection: 'Bombay Presidency', taken by an unknown photographer in the 1880s. This site marks the westernmost point of Dona Paula in Goa; originally it was occupied by a fort built by the Portuguese in 1540 to guard the entrance to the harbour. In 1594 a Franciscan convent was built here. It was chosen as the residence of the Archbishop of Goa in the 17th century due to its picturesque setting. However the residence was later converted into a summer palace for the Governors, known as Cabo Raj Bhavan.
