Fort Terekhol

Fort Terekhol

Standing tall along the coast of the River Tiracol, this fort provides a scenic atmosphere and a beautiful view of the river, making it a major tourist attraction in Goa. It was originally constructed by the King of Sawantwadi in 1746, but was acquired by the Portuguese under the reign of Viceroy Dom Pedro De Almeida. This fort stands as a testimony to the revolt between Almeida and the Portuguese forces. Today, it houses a heritage hotel but tourists can visit it via a 30-minute ferry ride.
