Fort Aguada Travel

The grand fort of Aguada was constructed in 1612 in order to prevent the entry of ships into the river Mandovi thus protecting old Goa from enemy attacks. Located at a distance of 12 km from Panaji, Fort Aguada boasts of the first ever light house in Asia. Equipped with ammunition rooms, Church and barracks, Fort Aguada was the first line of defence as far the Portuguese control over the region of Goa was concerned.

Presently serving as the Central Jail, Fort Aguada has witnessed many historical battles and moments some of which have had a direct impact on the health of the fort itself. The tower bell which survived centuries of weather and movements before being installed into the Church of Lady of Immaculate Conception, tells all the stories of adventures of the Fort of Aguada.
