Chapora Fort & Heritage Site

Chapora Fort Goa Of the endless things that Goa is renowned for, forts form a vital part. A succession of invasions by the Portuguese, Mughals & Indians has left Goa with a plethora of forts for tourists to cherish along the years. One such important fort is the Chapora Fort built on Chapora River by Adil Shah of Bijapur.
Location: The Chapora Fort is situated at a distance of about 25 km from Panaji & about 8 miles northwest of Aguada. The back of the fort has the sparkling Vagator beach. Also called as “Shahapura”, the fort lies close to the Anjuna Beach.

History: Dating back to 1617, the Chapora Fort is possibly the finest examples of Portuguese architectural style. Reconstructed of red laterite stones by the Portuguese, the fort was meant to serve as a guard against the Muslims & the Marathas until it was deserted in 1892. Several underground tunnels where constructed during the extended rule of the Portuguese. Mostly in ruins now, a few scattered Muslim headstones & massive walls is all that is left of this fort.

Chapora Fort Attractions: The fort offers a magnificent view of the Vagator Beach fringed with coconut palms. Besides the dry & rocky grasslands, the Vagator Beach is also renowned for its Portuguese style mansions. Alternatively you can freak out to the famous Anjuna Beach known for its exciting beach parties.

How to Reach? Chapora Fort can be reached via buses that regularly ply from Calangute Beach or Mapusa or direct buses from Panjim. You may even hire a taxi or motorcycle for the same.
