Notes on the Geography of Peninsular India: Bassein Fort: Photo 24
Within the fort, there's an inner fortress, and built against the wall of this inner fortress is the Church of N.S. da Vida. It's the oldest church in Bassein. Careri in 1695 wrote: "Thursday the 10th. understanding there was a wedding of people of quality at the Church of Our Lady de la Vida, I went to see the ceremony.... the bride was richly clad, after the French fashion." (Quoted by Albuquerque, p.63.) The church in 1852 became the Bassein Sugar Factory. The company quickly failed.
