Aguada Fort

Aguada Fort  photo

This is the largest and possibly the best-preserved Portuguese bastion in Goa and was built in 1609-12, to control the entry into the river Mandovi and to protect Old Goa from potential enemy attacks.

Our Opinion : We feel this is a “must see!” place. The fort is relatively large and has a majestic view of Arabian sea on one side and Panaji city/ Dona Paula / Mandovi river on adjacent side. The Fort also has a beautiful light house. It is just 10 mins drive from Candolim beach, so if you around this beach, you should visit the fort too !

Reis Magos Fort

Situated across the Mandovi river from Panaji city, it is conviniently located on your way towards Candolim and Calngute beaches.

Our Opinion : Beautiful fort and recently renovated ! The fort is small but has breathe taking view of Mandovi river and Panaji city on other side of the river. A must see if you love Mario Miranda's paintings ! These paintings are displayed in one of the halls. You need to take slight de-tour from road connecting Panaji and North Goa beaches like Candolim/Calangute.
