The Reis Magos Fort in Bardez is the oldest fort of Goa. The route to this destination made me feel as if I was in a video game because it tails the coastline. I felt relaxed to the sound of waves crashing against the rocky shore and the rustling of the coconut palms swaying in the breeze. The fort is adjacent to a crisp white church which provides a perfect contrast. The bright red-roofed houses complementing the cloudy weather reminded me of the paintings I made as a toddler. I couldn't help but gaze endlessly at this serene spectacle. I'm sure that you too will be smitten by its beauty. The Reis Magos Fort was restored by the government of Goa in 2012 and serves as a cultural and heritage center now. You can discover art and information related to the history of Goa exhibited inside the chambers of the fort. This fort played a significant role in the history of Goa. You can find many canons and an interesting architecture here along with beautiful views of the river and sea.
