Description: The Portugese naval attack on Goa in 1510, led by Afonso De Albuquerque (1453-1515), ended in the capture of the city from the Muslims. It began 450 years of Portuguese rule that left a distinct cultural legacy in Goa, in terms of religion, language, architecture and cuisine. Goa became the capital of Portugal's eastern empire, which included trading fairs called “feitoras” and forts in Eastern Africa, India, Southeast Asia, China and Japan.
