Aguada Fort Overview

Ranked 1 of 2 sightseeing in Chapora

Aguada Fort is located around 18 km away from the state capital Panaji. During the beginning of the 17th century, this fort was built by the Portuguese colonial rulers near the Mandovi River. A central jail and a lighthouse built during the 19th century are also located near this fort.

This fort was constructed mainly for shielding Goa from the attacks of Dutch and Marathas. At the base of this fort, travellers can see the beautiful Candolim and Sinquerem Beaches. The Aguda Fort is easily accessible from Panaji and Mapusa through local buses, taxis and motorbikes.

      A view to remember

      Easiest fort to trek. It takes barely half an hour to climb up there but the view on the top is worth everything. Recommended to spend evening there with 360 beach view of Vagator and Chapora beach. Sitting on the fort side place and looking at infinite sea is what you should look up to. Those and blue waters make you mingle with them. The soothing place to spend evening in Goa if you don't want those mainstream evenings at Calangute and Baga.

      An awesome fort

      Fort was just awesome and their was a story to explore a beautiful scenery and moreover this the way by which you reach. The place is more than any hill station because the road blind turns mountain on both side, passing through small markets and group of dhabas.
