Even though only parts of this fort remain it is still very beautiful and definitely worth a visit. Built by the Portugese and the Marathas the fort is a wonderful amalgamation of the two cultures. This is very apparent in its architecture.
The primary purpose of the fort was to keep prisoners and to provide freshwater to the sailors. The cells of the prison were designed in such a way that very little sun-light would reach the criminals. The place has vestiges of the huge building though and it provides a magnificient view of the sea. There is a short and stout white lighthouse in the premises that acted as a beacon for the sailors, but now lies abandoned.

Aguada Fort, Panaji Reviews - Write a Review
Awesome place, I have visited this place for the first time and the place is superb. I love the atmosphere over there. This is the best place for photography, from one point one can feel like they are at a island. We have spend around 5 hours here where in we had took lots of photos and the one thing which we had enjoyed a lot is hearing music with the portable speakers on the top of the wall.
An old fort built on hill side with restricted access to the tower and internal parts of the fort. One can enjoy the roof top and pavement available on the top walls. Beach side view and the hill road are worth visiting. Very well maintained and good to bring kids too. Free parking and no entry fees. Recently it has a kids play area built near by church which is again good pass time for kids. U can find Aguada jail nearby but don't plan to visit it is closed for visitors, just wasting your time for another 4 or 5 KM to and fro.
It is on top of the hill.. nice green atmosphere.... Little bit warm..... Nice sea views from top.. It was a old port where ships come for fresh water supply.... There are some old big water tanks in side the fort.... Keep water with you.
Amazing place and location. The view is just awesome. Though to reach there you nee to either have your own two wheelers ride or book a cab. There is no entry ticket. Will take 45min to 1hr atleast to see the whole place. Parking is available just outside the fort.
The portugese fort is situated on the sea side and is very humid so plan your trip accordingly in the mornings or in the evening, there is not much to see around the fort but the views are amazing. You can get a lot of good pictures while over here if you are a shutterbug. The lower fort is a jail and you can see the air vents for them from the top. Lighthouse here isn't accessible. Parking and travel to this place is decent and you have vendors selling lemon juice when you're thirsty and hats if you forgot to bring them.
