The most non commercialized area of Goa, Tiracol is a striking and scenic location in the northernmost part of Goa, surrounded by lush green landscape and lies at the mouth of the river Tiracol. It was initially built by a local king but was captured by the Portuguese in 1746. A part of the fort has now been converted into a heritage hotel that caters to tourists from all over the world.
Tiracol fort is located at the northernmost tip of North Goa. The Dabolim Airport is 82 kms away, and a cab will take approximately two hours to get to Tiracol fort. The Thivim railway station is 22 kms away from Tiracol, and you can hire cabs or an auto rickshaw from the station to get to the fort. Climbing the fort is tricky in the monsoons due to the growth of moss and vegetation.
