Chapora Fort and Beach

#33 of 37 things to do in Goa

Built by the Portuguese in 1717, located in North Goa, Chapora Fort is undeniably one of the most famous forts in Goa. The fort gets its name from Chapora River that flows right alongside it. It is now also known as the 'Dil Chahta Hain' Fort and was so named after the 2001 blockbuster that was shot here. The Fort rises on the banks of River Chapora where it meets the Arabian Sea. One can enjoy a great view of its surroundings even though today this laterite fort is almost in ruins. One can still see the entry points of the two tunnels that were built by the Portuguese to use as an escape in times of emergency. Legend also has it that the walls of the fort were thought to be impossible to breach as they followed the landscape almost exactly.The Chapora Fort is yet another one of the prime attractions of Goa.
