Aguada Fort Tours
About Aguada Fort, Panaji
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.

You will love the view of ocean and the very old fort built. A good place to visit with your family and kids to let them know the history of the forts in Goa and its history which is shown there. We'll maintained clean place. Many tourists visit here to enjoy the view
Fort Aguada is an Old Portuguese Fort. Presents a breath taking view of the sea and the surrounding area from the ramparts of the fort. The Fort itself is pretty unimpressive, mostly a vast courtyard. The one big attraction is the big white lighthouse (but you cant go on top of this though). Good to visit to get a feel of old Portuguese style fort, get to know a bit of Portuguese history in Goa and click some pictures along the fort. The Fort walls are interesting in the design of the bricks and look very medieval.
Well maintained place. It's a large open space so cover yourself as much as you can or otherwise ready to be tanned. It offers picturesque views. Drinking water is available inside the Complex. At the parking area there are lots of flea market.
Amazing place to visit with great views all around. The structure takes you back in time. It was raining when we visited there and the place looked incredible. It was so windy, I felt as if I was flying.
A must see place in Goa I would say. Huge place, great views and interesting history. It's an open area so those worried about getting tanned must come prepared. Outside the fort there are many small stalls/shops for water and other refreshments. Overall a great place.
