House of Seven Gables located near Largo de Igreja Square is the elegant Portuguese mansion and important landmark in the Margao city in Goa. This ancestral home of Eurico da Silva has drawn tourist attraction over the years.
The Seven Gables house was originally sported a row of seven typically Goan high pitched gables. It was designed and spaced out like a palace. It is also known as the 'House of Seven Roofs'. It is a wonderful specimen of the grand Portugal architecture. The main entrance sports Baroque features over its door head and the simplicity of the front facade of the house introduces you to what lies within. A wide open staircase takes you up and into the family chapel that is perhaps one of the finest examples of Baroque and Rococo art executed in the late phase. Today it has only three gables left out of the original seven. Oyster shells windows are fronted by balconies supported by corbels.
