Inspirock Rating:
4.2/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web
Built by the first Portuguese governor of India in 1505, Fort St. Angelos faces the Arabian Sea, offering a sweeping view of Mopila Bay and Dharmadam Island. Check the muzzle-loading cannons and walk through long fat-walled barracks or gunpowder houses. Soak in the tumultuous colonial history of the site, shared between the Portuguese, Dutch, British, and Kerala natives. A fine piece of military engineering, a wall projecting from the fort separates the rough sea and inland water. Overlooking a scenic fishing village, the fort is easily accessible by car and has parking. Add Fort St. Angelos and other attractions to your Kannur trip itinerary using our Kannur trip generator.

Unfortunately I'd like to keep the locations of these spots a bit anonymous, fortunately you can easily find these spurs off you have an eye for adventure!!!! Highly recommended for the mystic types.
  • Awesome place and ambience. Sea view is also there. Not recommended to visit under heavy sunlight.

  • It is known for it's historical importance very nice place and it is a must visit place in Kannur
  • Calm place with no entry fee. There is however a parking fee of Rs. 20 for four wheeler. The fort is accessible and offers good views and peek into history. When I visited the visitor center/museum was closed, so no comments on that.
