Tiracol, a small island located in the northernmost part of Goa, known mainly for the Tiracol Fort, is an estuary where the river meets the Arabian Sea offering some breath taking views. This place has a rich history which is reflected in the old buildings, heritage sites, forts etc.

The fort was built by the Marathas and it was captured by the Portuguese in 1776. Later, it was used by freedom fighters during the Goa freedom struggle in 1961.

Tiracol Fort houses a 100 years old chapel and an ancient church. Nowadays, it was converted to a Heritage Hotel.
