Chapora Fort, Chapora

4.0
Get a new perspective on the coastal area and the mouth of the river, as well as a greater understanding of local history at Chapora Fort. Built by the Portuguese in 1617 on the site of an older Muslim structure, the fort changed hands many times before its ultimate abandonment in 1892. Today, the crumbling ruins only possess outer walls, although the view from these alone merits the hike uphill. Standing on top of the ramparts, you'll gain sights of nearby beaches and the sparkling sea and river below. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Goa holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Chapora Fort and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Chapora fort has a high vantage point. It looks beautiful from up there. The only thing is that you have to walk all the way up just to see how beautiful it can be from up close. The view from there is superb. At the foothill of the fort is a newly opened star hotel ‘W’
  • Old abandoned fort that looks absolutely stunning during sunset. The waves and cool breeze with such a scenic view make for an ideal gateway destination. Should be visited during evening hours only..... afternoons here can be burning hot
  • Chapora fort is good for seeing the see from you can watch the sea from the top rest for the fort there is nothing much to see just the broken wall made of huge stones but from here you can click amazing photos and also you can take feel of tracking by visiting nearer field through walking. You can buy hat and shades and water on the way.. Google will show you that it closes at 5 pm but don't worry about it there is nothing to close it is an open area that is good for roaming with friends.
  • Beautiful place specially the view from the top. Picturesque place.... Better bring your drinks and snacks to avoid extra experience. Difficult to climb, be prepared
  • That cool breeze.... Orange light... Beach view.... Little trek towards the mountain will give you an awesome view and feel. Not much of a historic place....you'll just find the remains everywhere. But the view from the top of the fort at the sun set time is something one should experience.
