Create an itinerary including Chapora Fort
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.

  • Just because this place has been picturized in various hindi movies, esp the famous Dil Chahta Hai... doesnt make this place a good tourist attraction. It is very hot during the day so avoid going...

  • It is liberating and scenic spot. Excellent view of sea. Though its in dilapidated condition still it has its charm. There is a market on the entrance to buy exciting fancy, cloth and eatables. Many movies shot here so you filmy people would love this place.
  • Very scenic view, best view point of all so far I've seen. Too much litter. No entry free, no government employees to take care of the surroundings. Steep road/steps to reach the location, definitely worth it. I could shop good artifacts at dirt cheap prices there on the way back after sunset
