The Unconquered Fort of Goa
Nov 2020 • Family
After Covid Lockdown , there are entry fees now to enter Fort Aguada. Previously entry was free ... Network for mobiles is poor here so you must book tickets online from better network areas. It's amazing fort with a great history to it. An unconquered fort and was biggest water reservoir in Asia used to refill water in passing by ships . The Fort was built by Julio Simao and the lighthouse was constructed some years later.
Carry adequate water. Go early morning or in evenings. During the middle part of the day is very hot and direct sunlight . Winters during Oct to Feb is best time to visit.

Well worth a visit
Feb 2020
Situated beside fort Aguada and in pleasant we’ll kept grounds.The lighthouse has an interesting history .If you are visiting the fort it is only a short walk along the road and there is only a small entrance fee which helps to maintain this monument.We took a taxi from Sinquerim as it’s quite a climb up the hill but we had a pleasant walk back down and called to look at the lovely church where we sat a while to enjoy the view.

One of the major attraction of goa, the Fort Aguada in North Goa.I had visited this fort in the month of july19 and I was expecting a large fort but it turned out to be a very small one, we can walk aling all the boundaries and it gives a scenic view of the surroundings

Ok if your bored or cloudy weather
Dec 2019
Went to the fort which was just ok there really isn't anything to do there, the views are ok but you can get the views from anywhere. It costs far more to get in if you are a tourist than if a local which is fine by me as it was nice to see the local school kids there learning about their history. There is also another lighthouse next to the fort at the back this cost 25 rp to get in so be warned as the lady charged us 75 for 2 of us and didn't give us any tickets. A local couple came chasing us as they insisted on her producing tickets and told us always insist on getting a ticket.

Fort aguda is located on a slight hill top near to candolim beach which was constructed by the Portuguese which has a light house also inside it. It been used for navigation for the ships. It's a nice location for the photographs with the red-stone construction.
