Strategically located at the estuary of the river Mandovi, this fort was constructed in 1612 as a guard against invasions from the Dutch and the Maratha's.
The walls of this fort are 5 meters high and 1.3 meters wide. Little surprise then that this remains to be the only fort that was not conquered by any invaders during the 450 year long rule of the Portuguese empire.
An interesting feature in the precinct of the fort is a 13 meter high lighthouse.
