  • A wonderfully maintained fort in Goa. Worth a visit. Especially in the rains. It's covered in greenery. While going up one has to pay the entry fee and office provides a vehicle for the ride up. Private vehicles aren't allowed as there is no provision for parking on top. While coming down one has to walk, a short walk down. Or one can climb down the stairs. There is a picture gallery inside.
  • Beautiful Fort showcasing the history of Goa. Unbelievable panoramic views of the bay! Never knew that the fort held such an important place in the state's history. The restored fort is an absolute delight which makes you travel back in time. It's relatively small, but has various rooms chronicling the importance of the fort through the ages, a room showcasing the struggle of the freedom fighters of Goa, among other things. Truly a must visit destination for all.
  • It is a must visit place in Goa. Anyone who loves history can never miss this place. It is very well maintained. It is less crowded. The entire history of Goa is detailed here. The best part is the vehicle service for senior citizens to reach the fort.
  • How good as a fort it is I doubt. It's very small. But maintained to the best by the team. It was a wonderful experience there as the place is usually less crowded as most people don't know about it. Sit on the stairs in the back leading to the basement levels and enjoy the sea breeze. It's amazing. It's been modified a bit and couple of rooms have been converted to be a wash room but is well maintained.
  • The fort is reconstructed partly to recover heritage. It is properly maintained and you have to pay entry fee. Once you reach top, you will see beautiful view of ocean. Also fort has various sections filled with pictures depicting old Goa. It also shows remembers history of Goa's freedom fight. Good to visit place and to know more about Goa and it's culture.
