Well worth wondering around & driving all the way round to see the old Prison & Jimmy Gaspar's house- it has the best location in Goa, I think. Watch out for the guys with machine guns though.

This is really different than the forts we are accostomed to seeing in North India, build by the Mughals or the Rajputs. It has a nice feel to it, though the maintenance could have been better.

Fort Aguada is a nice fortification near the Aguada area (where Taj hotel was). We just landed here as we wanted a bike ride up the hill and near the jail area. The fort itself is decent with nice views of the sea. But it...More

Historically very interesting to know the reason the fort was built. Must try to understand the history behind it while visiting the fort. U will be able to appreciate the fort only then.
