Aguada Fort

Goa Trip

Type: Sea fort
Area: Panjim
Base Village: 13kms from Panjim
Best time to visit: Anytime of the year
Time visited: July 2012
Way to reach from Pune: Travel to Panji. It’s an Half an hour’s drive from Panjim.


Much part of the Fort Aguada seems to be converted to a beach Resort. We were not sure if the lower area facing the sea was accessible as it seemed that entry was through Taj Vivanta. But we were able to see upper area with old light house and huge water tank inside the fortified structure.

The entry to is very pleasing and is one of the best maintained structures.

 


The History put up by Archeological survey of India talks in detail about this structure.




















The main entrance is well protected gate not easily visible.




















The Magnificent view from the one of the towers inside the fortress with the huge water tank in the center.
