Archaeological Sites and Forts

Many forts built in the sixteenth century are situated at vantage points. Fort Aguada, Goa's most famous fort, is also its most awesome. Built over a period of eight years, it provided water to ships anchored nearby giving it the name 'Agua' {meaning ‘water’ in Portuguese}. It is now used as the central civil jail. Other places of interest are the Viceroy's Arch at Old Goa-the entrance to the city, the Idalcao Palace, now housing the Secretariat and the statue of Abbe Faria the Mystic at Panaji.
