The secrets of Aguada Fort
A short walk from the hotel is one of Goa’s iconic landmarks, Aguada Fort. Built in 1613 by Portuguese occupiers, the Fort was constructed to ward off invasion from other troops; mainly the Dutch and Indian Marathas. With its location on the shore, this place was a docking point for many ships wanting to stock up on freshwater from a spring within the Fort’s walls.
Every day tourists walk the Fort’s walls and climb the 19th-Century lighthouse, but many don’t realise that just feet away prisoners are held in cells that have changed little over the years. During the 1940s, when Antonio Salazar reigned over the Portuguese colonies, the Fort was repurposed into a prison and it still houses prisoners today.
Experience Goa’s hippy heyday
For those wishing to step back in time and experience the heady days of the hippy revolution in the 1960s, the Anjuna flea market is where you can find all things hippy.
With its origins firmly set in the sharing ethos of the original free souls, Anjuna flea market is especially popular with backpackers and travellers searching for the same vibe that once existed in the free-loving and giving days of the 60s.
