This is an over five hundred year old fort built by the Portuguese after the 1498 visit of Vasco Da Gama to India. The fort was used by the Portuguese to provide naval supplies for their conquest of Goa and Malacca. Later in 1663 the Dutch captured the fort from the Portuguese and pulled down the original wooden structure and built a stronger stone fort. In 1772 the Dutch sold the fort to King Ali Raja of Arakkal. In 1790 it was seized by the British and used as their chief military station in the Malabar till 1947. The fort is in a fairly well preserved condition and being looked after by the Archaeological Survey of India. It is open for tourists every day from 8 am to 6 pm. Car parking charges were ₹20 and entry charges ₹25 per head, which can be paid with credit card as well. The fort is at a beautiful location overlooking the Moppila Bay Harbour and is quite a nice area to walk around in with a lot of greenery and good views of the sea along the ramparts of the fort, with the old canons still in position as they used to be ages ago. There is also an amphitheatre where Light and Sound shows are sometimes held in peak tourist season. It is a must see attraction if you visit Kannur. It will take around an hour to walk around the scenic precincts of the fort, but well worth the effort. The best time to visit is early morning before it gets too hot, or in the evening just before sunset.

Fort St Angelos is located in the Cannanore Cantonment area and is fairly well preserved as a protected monument under the Archaeological Survey of India. An important historical monument and a popular tourist attraction it has Tourism Policemen posted for protection duty. We visited this fort on our second day in Kannur during our recent trip to Kerala. Established by the Portuguese in the early 1500 the fort was initially with them till it was annexed by the Dutch in 1663. It was sold to the Arrakal Raja in 1772 by the Dutch. The British finally seized it in 1790 and thereafter it was their base in the Malabar till 1947. The fort is very well preserved and also has a chamber where in 2015 a huge lot of cannon balls were excavated. The views from the fort are awesome. The view of the Moppilla Bay from the fort ramparts is lovely. A MUST VISIT LOCATION if in Kannur.

Interesting fort with wonderful sea views. Lots of history although more story boards would have been useful..... Perfect for a wander through and soaking up the history of the place.
