Fort Aguada

Overlooking the vast expanse of ‘seeming to be endless’ blue waters in front of it, Fort Aguada is one of the most popular tourist destinations of Goa. It receives a lot of tourist traffic all around the year. Reasons are that it’s excellent for sightseeing and also that it stands as a testimony to the glory of Portuguese empire.



Construction of the fort was undertaken by the Portuguese in the year 1609 for the purpose of keeping an eye on the movements through the waters and the nearby areas and the structure was finally complete in 1612. Since then, precisely for over more than 400 years, the fort has stood strong (although some parts of it have been ruined) and its magnificence remains intact.

The location where the fort was constructed was of strategic importance to the empire and provided it a great defence base.

Interesting features

Aguada lighthouse: So this is one of oldest of its kinds in Asia as it was built in 1864. It is a four storey structure and when you take a view of the surrounding acreage from the lighthouse, it is just par amazing. For the ones who love to take photographs, this is a place for you to look out for beautiful scenes and clicking opportunities!


Aguada Jail: Yes, there is a prison house in the fort where accused of the crimes such as narcotics abuse, drugs sale and trafficking are lodged in. It is closed for public visits.

Quick fact- It is one of the largest jails in Goa


A very short drive from Zense Resort can take you to Fort Aguada. Drive time should not be more than 10 minutes ideally. You can also choose to cycle your way to the fort with our tandem cycles.

The Best Reason to visit this historic place  will be the lighthouse which offers a breathtaking top view of the area around and The second reason is that you can relax with your better half while watching the sunset here because it is one of the most popular tourist spots in Goa to enjoy the sky painted in fleeting shades of red and orange while the sun bids a farewell to the day for then.
