Church of Saint Catherine of Alexandria

When India invaded the Portuguese State of India (Goa, Daman and Diu) in 1961, it was planned the settlement of populations from those areas in the Central Brazilian Plateau, near the newly inaugurated capital, Brasília. The plan did not prosper. Of this initiative remain only the ruins of an unfinished church of Saint Catherine of Alexandria and a poor settlement called Nova Goa, where, incidentally, does not live any egress from the Portuguese lands in India.


Quando a Índia invadiu o Estado Português da Índia (Goa, Damão e Diu), em 1961, foi planejada a fixação de populações dessas áreas no Planalto Central do Brasil, perto da capital recém-inaugurada, Brasília. O plano não prosperou. Desta iniciativa restam apenas as ruínas de uma igreja inacabada de Santa Catarina de Alexandria e um assentamento pobre chamado Nova Goa, onde, aliás, não vive nenhum egresso das terras portuguesas na Índia.
