Cabo de Rama Fort, Canacona

(3.8/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
The blackened stone walls of Cabo de Rama Fort reveal the long history behind the clifftop fortress. Now a tourist spot for nice views and a window to the past, the fort served as a strategic defensive outpost in pre-colonial and colonial times. The fort's western side offers sweeping views of the northern and southern coasts and nearby beaches, serving as a great spot to watch the sunset. See old cannons and wells, and explore the fort's hidden rooms. Don't miss one of the highlights, the lovely white church, frequently visited by devotees. You can guide yourself around the fort, but you'll find little signposted information. Arrange to visit Cabo de Rama Fort and other attractions in Goa using our Goa itinerary builder.

  • Well it was certainly an amazing experience. Old remains of the once gigantic fort which was used to defend territory. Makes you certainly feel as if you have gone back in time.
  • Fort, old church and view from back of Fort is amazing and outstanding. Climbing and walking around brings lots and lots of joy and fun. Bit isolated but Must visit place in Goa.
  • It's a nicely preserved site but not too much historical information on the site itself. You'd have to Google it. Ideal to spend an hour here. Carefully of the steep steps while descending from the Fort walls.
  • Awesome point....you just have to go and explore the place, it has most beautiful and enjoyable spots. Three spots- A) Top of fort tower- curve last piece of land view. B) Go down opposite to above tower from hill you will find spot alike in photo. C) go straight from church to 1 km you can see end point of hill and then just ocean.
  • Cabo de Rama is beautiful any time of the year - its about a 44 km drive from Panaji and you would need to set aside a whole day when your visiting this area. There is the famous Cabo de Rama beach with is not far from this location. It's hot almost whole year around hence wear clothing accordingly and hydrate regularly. The view is beautiful but can end up being pretty boring for the kids. This fort has historical significance and one should read up before visiting as it makes the place more interesting.
