Though not as famous as Fort Aguada, this smaller fort actually predates the larger one by about half a century. Built in 1551, it was enlarged over the centuries, and proved to be decisive against the Maratha armies in the 18th century. Visitors ought to check out the commanding view it has of the land and the sea, and the 33 guns that defend its walls. Later used as a prison, the fort eventually was abandoned, fell into decay, until it was renovated in the late 20th century. Today it is used as an event space that can be rented out to private parties. It's a popular place to get married, shoot films, or throw a fashion show.

Near the fort, close to a pretty spring of water, is the elegant church of Reis Magos.

  • Small yet a good fort to visit. It was like visiting some movie set. Well maintained. It's good pretty good views towards the sea and mountains. One can cover this fort in less than an hr, with 50 Rs for entry + Rs 250 extra if you are carrying a camera.

  • The Highlight of our trip to Goa. Never saw a public monument so well maintained and looked after. A hidden gem of sorts with very friendly staff. The views high up are breathtaking. Sparsely crowded so ample opportunities to click great photos. I loved the architecture of the fort and how well planned and well laid out it is considering its quite old. Best of the forts in Goa if not all of India. Do not miss the death hole which is a good defence feature designed to keep out enemies who tried to enter the fort.
