"Portugese fort" Fort Aguada Tip by clouds111

Fort Aguada, Goa: 18 reviews and 46 photos

Fort Aguada built in 1612 by the Portuguese at the mouth of the Mandovi River to protect Goa from the Dutch and the Marathas.

It is worth a visit and is only a reasonable walk from Candolim along the beach. If however you want to walk up to the lighthouse this will take around 45 minutes or longer to walk to the top and in the blazing heat this can be quite a mission especially with only half a bottle of water!!! It would take about 5-10 mins in a cab from the bottom. There isn't that much going on up there apart from the lighthouse, water tank that once supplied the towns below with water and the old ramparts but you will get great views over Panjim and Aguada Jail. The walk will give you some great photo opportunities too so it was all worth it in the end.
