Fort Aguada

Fort Aguada

Fort Aguada is a well-preserved 17th-century Portuguese fort gets its name — meaning water — thanks to its freshwater springs that satiated the thirst of sailors who passed nearby. It was constructed by the Portuguese to ward off attacks by the Dutch and Marathas, and as a checkpoint for ships arriving from Europe. Smaller than other forts in India, it consists of a lighthouse and the Fort Aguada Beach Resort, a property of India Hotels.
