Reis Magos Fort is the oldest fort in Goa, located on the banks of River Bardez across Panjim in Goa. The 15th-century Portuguese fort was once a defence fortress which was later converted into a jail and then a hospital. Ruined and neglected, it was restored and finally opened to the public in 2012. The majestic fort with reddish walls is visible all the way from Panjim.
Listed under Goa Ancient Monuments and Archaeological Sites and Remains Act, the Reis Magos Fort regularly organizes exhibitions, displays, performances, fairs, festivals and educational events to promote the cultural heritage of Goa. There are four galleries at the fort - Freedom Fighter's Gallery, Art Gallery, History & Restoration Hall and Gunloops. The architecture of Reis Magos Fort is a melange of Portuguese and Indian architectural styles. The height of the fort commands a stunning panoramic view of the surrounding area.
