Forts of Goa

When in Goa the beaches surely mesmerise us with the tranquil water and warm sand however Goa also has a long list of forts which truly are magnificient and shout out the Goan history in every way possible. Let me take you along on my journey to explore these lost jewels, some known, some relatively unknow but never the less, each one has its unparallel charm that will surely leave one smitten.

The Aguada fort.

The aguada fort is huge, so huge that one part of the fort houses the magnificient Taj Aguada.
A 17th century portuguese fort on the sinquerim beach (very near to candolim beach).
Aguada meaning water, the fort had a fresh water spring, passing ships used to stop by to fill in on their quota of fresh water. That is how the fort got its name.
The fort houses a big giant lighthouse which is maintained well.
One look at the fort, the lighthouse and the views and you are surely transported to the era gone by, wondering how life would have been - wonderful much.

Have a look through my lens.




The light house, standing tall,,

The red structure in the middle has miniatures of old Goan forts and information about them.



The fort walls so sturdy ,, protecting it for decades and decades ... 

Tiny me.. 


The view 

Lost in it all ... 








Behind closed doors,, 


Now we are in the part of Taj Aguada.. 
Just staring at the sea for hours ,,, calmness 





And finally dipping the feet on the beach of senquerim,,, the Colors of the setting sun ,, the orange hues spreading over and being one in the night sky and the blue waters ❤️

After a hot day in the Goan sun, the water felt so welcoming and cool, it melted down all the tiredness and rejuvenated me instantly. It was so pleasant with a nice breeze billowing as if whispering in my ear and blowing my hair to tease me... 





One should definitely visit this fort - beautiful indeed. 
There are lot of sellers selling yummy goodies outside the fort, that one can enjoy. Do carry a bottle of water inside the fort, the Goan sun does get you. Don't forget your sun tan, shades and a hat. At the base of the hill there is a little boating place where one can chose a ride of ones choice. All in all a nice place with amazing views. One should explore this place 👍👍👍
