Fort Aguada

This is a very well preserved fort which was built in the 17th Century by the Portuguese. The fort was made as the most important building of the Portuguese colonials and they always wanted to save it against the Dutch and the Maratha rulers. It is in the Candolin area on the Sinquerim Beach. The location of the fort on the banks of the Mandovi River makes it look even more beautiful. The fort covers a large area and almost covers the whole tip land of the Bardez Peninsula. At present there is also a holiday resort built here by the tatas and is a beautiful place to stay for a peaceful vacation. It is also close to the Candolim Beach and the shopping and eating areas around. This was at one time the most important port where most of the ferries and boats landed and left from and thus the name Aguada meaning 'water'.

Aguada Fort was close to our hotel and the beautiful drive was just the icing on the cake. I had faint memories of visiting Aguada back in 2012. However, I couldn't remember exactly what made this fort a tourist attraction. Like Chapora, Aguada is more of ruins of a fort than a standing fort. It doesn't offer much except for panoramic views of the Arabian Sea. It can also get overcrowded. I personally liked the views at Chapora better than Aguada and the fewer crowds just make it a better place to spend some time.

1. Fort AguadaWe started our day with fort Aguada which is one of the most popular tourist destinations of Goa. It receives a lot of tourist traffic all around the year. Reasons are that it’s excellent for sightseeing and also that it stands as a testimony to the Portuguese empire.
