Chapora Fort, Goa

#3 of 87 in Historic Sites in Goa
Ruin · Landmark
Get a new perspective on the coastal area and the mouth of the river, as well as a greater understanding of local history at Chapora Fort. Built by the Portuguese in 1617 on the site of an older Muslim structure, the fort changed hands many times before its ultimate abandonment in 1892. Today, the crumbling ruins only possess outer walls, although the view from these alone merits the hike uphill. Standing on top of the ramparts, you'll gain sights of nearby beaches and the sparkling sea and river below. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Goa holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Chapora Fort and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • The view from the fort is amazing. Make sure to carry water, hat and an umberella along, if your planing to go there in the mid day one might fall sick because of the sun and heat. Better go there...  more »
