Built by the Portuguese. A very nice fort but in ruins now. Very few of the old stone steps to climb (not more than 15 steps) to get a great view of the sea and its surrounding areas. Still has it old charm. There is also a Church inside the fort, Our Lady of the Sea.

No need to go to this place. Nothing good or interesting here. Just an old fort with lots of dirt & grass.

fort is not maintained properly. there were kids playing cricket inside the fort. it was a waste of time to visit there- except that you can walk over the boundary wall and gave a good view of the place.
