Margao - Chapora Fort

The Margao - Chapora Fort tour has earned its place among the most popular tours from Margao. The Margoa to Chapora Fort trip is equally popular with history freaks and general tourists.

Like some other forts of the Goan land, the Chapora Fort was built by Adil Shah. Later on the Portuguese captured the fort and rebuilt it. After the Portuguese left the citadel in 1892, the Chapora Fort gradually lost its glory and today, it stands amidst ruins.

Much of the Chapora has been destroyed but few tombstones are still seen. With the sea beckoning from a distance, the panoramic view from the top of the fort enchants the visitors. The place has been used as the shooting venue for several hit Bollywood movies.
