Details

Chapora fort, in its present form was built by the Portuguese in 1617. Over the course of time, the fort fell in several hands including the Maratha rulers, the local chieftans in the area before being aquired by Portuguese again and finally deserted by them in 1892. The fort is in ruins. The two tunnels which served as pathway can still be seen. 

The fort is a small climb away from the base. It is a slightly steep climb with a distance of about 200 to 300 mts. Once one reaches the top of the fort and walk through the entrance, the view is worth the climb. It provides great view of the Anjuna and Vagator beaches. The fort, even though in ruins adds its history and represents the significance it had before. This fort became more popular with the tourists after a small portion of the bollywood movie "Dil Chahta Hai" was shot here. Chapora fort is near to the popular beaches like Anjuna and Vagator.
