Candolim is a census town in North Goa and is located in the Bardez taluka in the state of Goa, India. It is arranged only south of the renowned Calangute Beach, and is a well known traveler goal. Amid the late sixteenth century, Candolim turned into the main town to be completely changed over to Christianity in Bardez by the Franciscans. The present Christian character of its villagers goes back to the transformation of Santu Sinay Shenoy, a ganvkar Konkani: freeholder who had a place with the honorability of his skin. Santu Sinay 1577– 1640, was the child of Naru Sinay; who had prior moved from Loutolim, Salcette, and set up himself in Candolim, where he obtained the fifth vangodd tribe of the comunidade on 13 August 1604.
Naru Sinay kicked the bucket after 1624, and was made due by his better half, four children—Jeronimo de Souza, Manoel de Souza, Santu Sinay, and Christovao d'Andrade, and one girl, Quiteria de Souza. Santu Sinay was changed over alongside whatever remains of his family at 8 years old, and in this manner took the name of Salvador Pinto. His back up parent was Fr. Manoel Pinto, a Franciscan minister of the Church of Our Lady of Hope of Candolim and the theological college of Reis Magos. He was raised in the theological school of Reis Magos, where he built up an extraordinary commitment to St. Francis Xavier.
