Located in Candolim, a short distance away from Taj Fort Aguada Resort, Fort Aguada is a popular tourist attraction in North Goa. Built in 1612, this fort was built as the chief defense of Portuguese against the Dutch and Marathas. The spot had a freshwater spring, which made it a pit stop for ships to replenish their freshwater stocks at. In fact, this is how this place got its name: Aguada means water. The fort stands on a hill that provides sweeping views of the sea, and even gives you a bird’s eye view of the point where the Mandovi river meets the sea. Today, this fort is a popular hangout spot that is loved for its sunset views. Best part? You can walk right in. There's no entry fee.
