Forts to Explore in North Goa
A well preserved 17th-century fort along with a lighthouse overlooking the Arabian sea. It was a reference point for the vessels coming from Europe at that time. A freshwater spring within the fort provided water supply to the ships that used to stop by. This is how the fort got its name: Aguada, meaning Water.
This ancient fort in North Goa offers splendid views of the adjoining Vagator beach and overlooks the Arabian Sea from all angles.
Surrounded by sturdy laterite walls studded with typically Portuguese turrets, it was erected in 1551 to protect the narrowest point at the mouth of the Mandovi river. It was used as a residence for viceroys and later converted to a fortress.
