Very average place & can be skipped. Nothing special to see. View of the beach & sea is good. Walls around & having an empty place in the center. It was used as a water reservoir. Basement is not open for visit. only top is allowed.

I love to ride the bike up here and take in the views, the fort and lighthouse are open between 8.30am and 5.30pm and have great views down on to the mandovi and along into Panjim and Mirimar.

You'll find tourists in ample number here. I went in end of Nov 2014 and it was very hot here. Don't forget to carry some water and eatables .... More
