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'.

About Fort: Fort Aguada is a well-preserved seventeenth-century Portuguese fort, along with a lighthouse, standing in Goa, India, on Sinquerim Beach, overlooking the Arabian Sea.Scenic view from the top of the Fort is beautiful. But it requires a little bit of maintenance as they charging an entry fee from the tourist. There is also a lack of facilities for food and drinks, near to the fort. The fort contains a large water storage tank beneath it. The charges for foreigners should be reduced as it is way too high.Also, this place also used as prison cells. But when I visited this place, they were filling up those cells permanently.
