Chapora Fort, Chapora

4.0
Get a new perspective on the coastal area and the mouth of the river, as well as a greater understanding of local history at Chapora Fort. Built by the Portuguese in 1617 on the site of an older Muslim structure, the fort changed hands many times before its ultimate abandonment in 1892. Today, the crumbling ruins only possess outer walls, although the view from these alone merits the hike uphill. Standing on top of the ramparts, you'll gain sights of nearby beaches and the sparkling sea and river below. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Goa holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Chapora Fort and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Chapora fort has a high vantage point. It looks beautiful from up there. The only thing is that you have to walk all the way up just to see how beautiful it can be from up close. The view from there is superb. At the foothill of the fort is a newly opened star hotel ‘W’
  • Old abandoned fort that looks absolutely stunning during sunset. The waves and cool breeze with such a scenic view make for an ideal gateway destination. Should be visited during evening hours only..... afternoons here can be burning hot
