"Fort Aguada" Fort Aguada Tip by grets

Fort Aguada, Goa: 18 reviews and 46 photos


One of the most touristy sites we came across on our travels, Fort Aguada was built in 1612 and was never taken by force!

The guard started chatting to the two of us (we didn't speak the same language) and offered to take us down to the (normally out-of-bounds) underground chambers. Ensuring no-one was looking, he quickly unlocked the gate and led us down some fairly steep and rather dark stairs, locking the gate securly behind us. There wasn't a great deal to see down there, but we felt we were privileged to see something not every tourist ahd, and the guard earned a few rupees in backshees. (he probably takes ALL the tourists down there)
