Quick 10 minute check-in. Picturesque but unremarkable. See Vasco da Gama's tomb (?). Worth a dekko as you walk around.

Very basic church. Has historical importance. Inside photography not allowed. Also contains some remains of Vasco da Gama. Area around the church will create a feeling of being in another era.

Over the years maintenance is a bit of a question mark. Looked a little run down. Lacking in descriptions. Needs to be looked after better.
