Has a very beautiful scenic view. You can see the Agauda Jail which is one of the oldest. The Sea looks so beautiful when you look at it from up here. Best Place for Photographers and scenery lovers.

Fort Aquada Lighthouse is the oldest place in Goa, from the time when the movie "Ek Dule Ke Liye" was released. Now they have built a new light house by the side of old fort, but the fort is still there and one can visit inside the fort and have a nice and beautiful view of the sea from the... More

The lighthouse at Fort Aguada was built in 1864. It is a wide based, stocky looking lighthouse. In it's early days it used an oil lamp flame to emit light. The lighthouse was modernized in the 1970s. Along the walkway on top, just outside the glass windows is a pretty metal railing. For years the huge bell from the ruins... More

The drive from Panjim, through Betim along the Mandovi river is just fantastic. At a point the Mandovi merges into the Arabian sea and the winding road rises to Fort Aquada, an ancient Fort & Prison built by the Portuguese. The view of the Arabian Sea, Dona Paula, Miramar & Lights of Panjim city on a clear day is just... More

The place is an ideal location to rewind with panoramic sea view from top of the fort. You do not notice time spent here. Good place to visit and spend some quality time.

The ride up to the Fort is scenic and a quick short get away from the beaches. So go there atleast for the short ride up and if you like a little brush with history then this Portugese fort can tell you a story with its open yards, dark corridors, scenic view of the Arabian Sea. The gates close at... More
