Overlooking a beautiful beach is the Sinquerim Fort. It is located in a hill area. It was built in the 16th century and its purpose was to help guard Goa against invaders like the Dutch and the Marathas. It was a reference point for European vessels.
Even today the fort is in relatively good condition and has different sections and fortified walls. The lower portion of the fort was a dock for Portuguese ships. The Portuguese abandoned it in the 19th century.
The Fort divides the shore into two. It is an extension of the Aguada Fort. It’s a great place to watch sunsets, go for a leisurely stroll, feel the cool gentle breeze and watch the waves splashing about.
