Unlike Fort Aguada this one isn’t that popular because of a short steep climb. If you don’t mind a short 5 mins climb then this one is a must visit.

This fort is located very near Panjim. Burn like all places in Goa you will need your own vehicle to reach this renovated fort located next to a church and the sea . The ticket office closes at 5 PM and the entry fees is Rs50. There are free parking inside the ticket office compound. As it is a fort you have climb a bit. The restoration has been done quite well. It’s a small fort and you get an amazing view of the area around. The room with Mario’s paintings could have a section devoted to the great artist. There are excellent photo ops.

Reis Magos Fort is a Portuguese fort atop a hill overlooking the Mandovi River on one side and Aguada Fort on the other side. It was also used as a Jail during the freedom movement of Goa. It is a well maintained and beautiful fort. Not large in area but has a very beautiful view of the Mandovi River, the Aguada Fort and the sea. Good place to visit.

Probably the only place where face masks were enforced and there was a entrance fee which kept crowd away. A little hike above and you have superb views of Panaji mainly over Mandovi river.
Not crowded - you can enjoy the views peacefully.
It was a prison complex and there are some history on display. There is a cemetery on one side of it also.

About 6 kms from Candolim, you will find this fort that was renovated by late chief minister of Goa, Shri Manohar Parrikar. Entry ticket is 50/- per person, parking is free but any kind of camera other than that of mobile phones is allowed by paying 250/-. Entry to fort is a steep climb of about 100 meters. From entry gate itself one can see beautiful views of Sea, a church, and the monument itself. Once inside, you can see some history and cannons placed on top of fort. There are enough spots for shutter bugs in this small yet beautiful fort.

Located in North Goa, this restored fort has served as a hospital, jail from the 17th century. It's been only 3-4years since it has been open to the public. The views are really nice and people are also less when visiting. Worth a visit for history lovers.

Visited this gorgeous Fort with my sister, nephew and mumma. Looking at my elderly mumma, I was told at the ticket counter that the fort needs a lot of steep walking and climbing. They do arrange a drop till the entrance gate but it still needs a lot of strength walking. We thought of dropping the plan and going back when they themselves suggested that mumma can wait at their reception while we take a stroll at the fort. We found this workable but we were lil worried too.

We were dropped by them in a van till the entrance gate.
What I saw: Gorgeous would be an understatement for such a majestic fort. You get a magical view of the river from the fort. Beautifully maintained. Extremely clean unlike other government properties.

BUT at the back of my mind, I was constantly worried about mumma that we didn’t spend a lot of time and came back quickly. When we came back, we saw an altogether different view. My mumma was taken care well by them and she and the other lady at the reception were laughing and chit-chatting. I was surprised and really happy to see this. Goan people are way too sweet. Can never forget this and can’t thank enough for this sweet gesture.

A fort built by the Portugese in 15th century and used as a prison till early 1990 - the fort exudes history from every nook and corner. The place is well maintained, clean and has proper sanitisation protocol in place. With the gallery depicting the long history of Goa and the other gallery with Mario Miranda's work, this place is a must visit for those who want to learn more about Goa and the life.
