A list of forts and fortresses across Goa you need to catch up with.

The fertile land of Goa was always a piece of paradise that many a ruler coveted. And the monarch who held Goa built forts and fortresses to fend off the attack of the enemy. Most of these forts are now in ruins but offer an insight into the construction skills of the bygone rulers. Since most of the forts are on headlands, they also offer fantastic views of the scenic beauty of Goa.
