Portuguese fort which is completely in ruins. The basilica according to the locals was very ornate but now in ruins. I recommend for those who like to walk around during the morning or early evenings before sunset. Beware of climbing the walls as it's unsafe

Good place to visit with your friends, family. Located on shores of Vasai Creek, it's a huge fort. But currently only ruins are their, not maintained by anybody. Still it's a quiet place to spend your evening with your spouse or friends.
