Tiracol Fort Travel

The Tiracol fort overlooking the Querim beach and the Tiracol River originally belonged to a local King who had constructed it with an aim to monitor and protect the traffic along the river and the shore. However, the fort was captured by the Portuguese 1746. A church (St. Anthony's church) was constructed right at the center of the fort which is perched on the hilltop.

This part of Goa is lush green and the same greenery is visible at every nook and corner of the fort and area below. The fort has also worked as a base for the freedom struggle/ liberation of Goa in year 1961. The fort has been converted into a heritage hotel plays host to numerous tourists.
