Fort Aguada, Sinquerim

3.9
A well-preserved structure constructed in 1612, Fort Aguada sits on the mouth of River Mandovi, placed there to fend of the Dutch and the Marathas. Examine how the entire strategic construction is divided into two sections, with the upper part used as a water station and fort, and the lower as a berth for ships. The lighthouse was used to guide ships safely to their docks, until it was abandoned in 1976. Deep inside, discover the escape passage that enabled retreat during war and other emergencies.

  • Overall its a simple self exploring place. You will have to walk a bit to get in the fort. There is very less place for shade so mind you take umbrella or hat if you cannot bear the heat of the sun. You can walk n stand on the narrow walls of the fort on your own risk. These pictures are taken from there.
  • It is a Historical place and very well maintained by government. Good place for history lovers. It's clean and good place to have a visit. You should visit it in the morning because you have to walk more then you think.
  • Good place to visit. No visiting charges applicable. Takes 1 hour to go around the fort and have few awesome clicks. Visit the beach near by which is awesome too
  • Route to the Fort was quite scenic. Also the view from the fort of the Sea is simply spectacular Fort Aguada and its lighthouse was built in seventeenth-century by the Portuguese. It still stands strong and is well preserved. It has the capacity to store 2.4 million gallons of water. The lighthouse was abandoned in 1976 No entry fee for visiting the fort
  • You can enjoy awesome scenic beauty from this historic fort. You can take some spectacular photographs in this Portuguese Fort. It would take more or less 1 hour to see the whole fort

Where to stay in Goa

One of the more affordable regions for staying in India, Goa offers a good range of sleeping options, from budget to luxurious. Visitors looking for that feeling of home away from home can explore rental apartments, which offer more space than a hotel room and often come with fully equipped kitchens. Look for an apartment in Oxel or Siolim, peaceful villages with gated communities and a range of facilities. Beach houses and private villas offer an alternative for those with deeper pockets, while beach huts/shacks work well for budget-conscious travelers.
