An excellent example of Portuguese military architecture, Fort Aguada offers an excellent view of the sea. It also has a four storeyed light house and a jail!!! Must see if you are in Goa!!!

This is a good place to see aerial view of sea. Huge terrace to take some good clicks. But prefer to visit in the early morning in day time it is too hot. No entry fee and closing time is 5:30 pm.

Ford Aguada has a historic relevance thus a must visit place for history lovers. You can either go inside or take a tour by boat which is normally clubbed with Dolphin watching tours from Coco Beach.
