Palacio was built in the 18th  cent by a rich Portuguese noble man Jose Paulo who founded Quepem town. Way past Margao reach Chandor and Palacio is 10 km or so away. The heritage mansion is very interesting to view as one starts off with the grand entrance that takes you straight to the in -house chapel. Many heritage homes in Goa have chapels adjoining the main house with rows of pews as a regular feature. At Palacio it’s a compact alter with a life size Jesus on the cross. Explore this house at leisure and soak in the history of Goa.
