This place is a picture-perfect place in the Bardez. The Light house is an old building and the surrounding near it gives a good location for Instagram picutres.

PLace to visit to understand history & enjoy the view. Do take your kids along. The place has to be walked long way to reach thus avoid too elderly person.

A squat and sure, formidable lighthouse built in 1864 within the strategically located Fort Aguada, one of the oldest of its kind in Asia, that emitted light every seven minutes through (what must have been) ginormous oil lamps... along with the historic 2.4 million gallon fresh water storage tank (lending the name Aguada - meaning 'watering place' in Portuguese) and fabulous views of the sea - the lighthouse and the fort are a must-see for history buffs !

After Covid Lockdown , there are entry fees now to enter Fort Aguada. Previously entry was free ... Network for mobiles is poor here so you must book tickets online from better network areas. It's amazing fort with a great history to it. An unconquered fort and was biggest water reservoir in Asia used to refill water in passing by ships . The Fort was built by Julio Simao and the lighthouse was constructed some years later.
Carry adequate water. Go early morning or in evenings. During the middle part of the day is very hot and direct sunlight . Winters during Oct to Feb is best time to visit.

Situated beside fort Aguada and in pleasant we’ll kept grounds.The lighthouse has an interesting history .If you are visiting the fort it is only a short walk along the road and there is only a small entrance fee which helps to maintain this monument.We took a taxi from Sinquerim as it’s quite a climb up the hill but we had a pleasant walk back down and called to look at the lovely church where we sat a while to enjoy the view.
