THE FIGUEIREDO MANSION

Built in 1590, the Figueiredo Mansion pre-dates the Taj Mahal by decades. It was designed by Jesuit priests from nearby Rachol Seminary to accommodate a newly-converted Goan family - the Podiars, who took the name Figueiredo.

The house's sumptuous interior stands in studied contrast to the natural beauty of the paddy fields and coconut trees that surround it.

In the 18th century, with the family's rise in power, the house was suitably augmented to achieve its current proportions. The addition is still known as the "New house".

Every interior was planned out in detail, using the finest components from across the world:





THE FIGUEIREDO FAMILY

The Podiars were powerful Saraswat Brahmins who relocated from their native Sancoale in the 16th century, due to an outbreak of bubonic plague.
One part of the family settled in Shiroda, while the other moved to Loutulim and embraced Christianity, taking the surname Figueiredo.
