Create an itinerary including Fort Aguada
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.

  • There are two forts: Upper and Lower (situated next to Taj Aguada), both are around 3kms apart. The main fort is Upper Fort, so do check maps properly on this. The fort itself is very nicely...

  • The place has that perfect view. On one side you will get the plush green scenery and on the other end you will have the ever cozy sea. There are a lot of exploration points so try to take out more time while visiting the place. Get on board with your friends and move around the place to enjoy.
  • Historical monument. Every citizen wants to visit this place.
