Reis Magos Fort Travel

The Reis Magos fort was constructed in 1551 in order to provide protection to the location where the Mandovi River becomes narrow and permits entry of sea faring vessels into the river. The Portuguese, realizing the importance of the strategic location constructed the fort overlooking the Reis Magos church and studded it with laterit walls and turrets.

Though the fort was in ruins a few years back it was renovated and has since been converted into a security prison where entry is not permitted. However, it is possible to take a closer look at the fort by climbing the nearby hill. The spot also affords a direct view of the Mandovi River and surroundings.
