Domingos Paes (16th century) was a Portuguese traveller who visited the Vijayanagara Empire around the year 1520. His account of the capital Vijayanagara (Hampi) is the most detailed of all historic descriptions of this ancient city.

He visited the city during the rule of King Krishna Deva Raya[1] and recorded his impressions of Vijayanagara state in his Chronica.
