Next to the relic gateway is the Church of Our Lady of Divine Providence, completed in 1661; to its left is the S. Caetano (= Cajetan) Monastery, named for the founder of the Theatine Order. Caetano came from Thiene, west of Venice, and was a contemporary of the better known St. Francis Xavier. He arrived in Goa in 1639 and, failing to get permission to proselytize within the dominion of the Nizam of Hyderabad, settled here after swearing allegiance to the Portuguese king. The Theatines were unusual in accepting non-Europeans to their order.
