Goa Forts


Aguada Fort GoaThe forts in Goa are largely a legacy of the Portuguese occupation of the land. As the conquerors led by Albuquerque sought to expand their territory, they erected massive forts at strategic locations so as to ward off hostile attacks. These imposing edifices, strategically situated at river mouths, proved to be the bulwarks against enemy troops. But as the Portuguese gradually gave up their dominions, the Goa forts were reduced to a state of dilapidation and ruins. In recent years some of the forts of Goa have been refurbished as heritage hotel properties to leverage their rich legacies. Given below are some famous forts in Goa:

Fort Aguada
Cabo Da Rama Fort
Reis Magos Fort
Terekhol Fort
