Believed to be the strongest and most impressive fort of Goa, Fort Aguada stands on the mouth of the Mandovi river. A 19th-century lighthouse is situated inside the fort and is a good place for visitors to hang out.The fort was constructed in 1612 to guard against the Dutch and the Marathas. It was a reference point for the vessels coming from Europe at that time. This old Portuguese fort stands on the beach south of Candolim, at the shore of the Mandovi river. It was initially tasked with defense of shipping and the nearby Bardez District.A freshwater spring within the fort provided water supply to the ships that used to stop by. This is how the fort got its name: Aguada means Water.Today the Fort Aguada Beach Resort sits where original fort once did.The land around the fort is now owned by The Indian Hotels Co. On the ramparts behind the fort is the Fort Aguada Beach Resort. The 5-star-rated hotel, owned by the Tatas is part of an 88-acre complex overlooking the Arabian Sea is situated on Sinquerim Beach.
