Mormugao Fort is one of the top coastal forts in Goa, located at Mormugao port, a few km from Vasco de Gama. A popular tourist attraction, it was built in the early 17th century by the Portuguese to protect the Margoa Port. Overlooking the Varca Beach, the grand fort commands a fabulous view of the scenic landscape and the beautiful Arabian Sea.
Though most of the fort is presently in ruins, the bastions and bulwarks still stand tall and fortify the area. There are also two stunning fountains here - Fonte de Malabar and the Fonte Santo Ignacio. These are believed to have originated from a gold and sulphur mine. The original fort included towering bulwarks, prison blocks and accommodation for the garrison.
