The Braganca House was built in the 17th century, 10 kms east of Madgaon in South Goa. The east wing has a small chapel with a relic of St. Francis Xavier alongwith the artefacts collected by the family over the years. There is a ballroom with antique chandeliers and heavily carved ornate rosewood furniture. The west wing of the house has exquisite furniture and Chinese porcelain from Macau. It also houses a collection of family portraits, dating back to the 17th and 18th centuries. The library is believed to be the first private library in Goa having 5,000 leather bound books.
