An old fort, with the sea waves hitting it's walls. A perfect scenic fort placed in the Kannur's famous sea-shore. It lets us experience the history. The place is well maintained, & is quite beautiful. It's a nice place to visit.

There is nothing much to do inside the fort. The place hardly offers any great views. There is not much to photograph as well. Not sure about opening and closing times but early morning if possible and evening might be better. It's too humid in...More

A calm place place with a touch of historical significance. You get a very beautiful view of the beach and fishing from the top of the fort. Could have been maintained better, parking system is messy, no control or proper arrangements.

Vasco de Gama had real trouble establishing a base, because the king here was very powerful and resisted all things Portugese. It wasn't till 1505 that resistance was overcome and a fort built. The Dutch took over in 1663 and the British about 1790. You...More

The fort is not very large keeping in view of the Portuguese constructing this for the purpose of military guard and a mutual security protection agreement with the then local kings. The fort is neatly kept with good scenic views and good photography of both...More

Doing nothing but kill time at home or at the hotel room? Take a rickshaw and head straight to the fort. Explore its 18th Century beauty and walk around, trust me its the most peaceful place you can go to in Kannur

It's Kannur or Cannanore. Connoor is a hill station in Tamil nadu. I'm unsure about islands off Kannur, but being a seaside town with ample river streams flowing through, you can expect such islands to exist; Dharmadam being... More
