about fort aguada jail

Fort Aguada Jail, Goa is one of the largest and best-preserved symbols of Portuguese dominance in Goa. This magnificently sublime fort was built in 1612 by the settlers-cum-rulers to protect old Goa region from potential attacks by the enemy. The enormous vaulted cistern in the central courtyard, the four-storeyed lighthouse and the gigantic bell inside of it, are all symbols of a significant era gone by. And what remains of this vast fort has been converted into a prison, supposedly the biggest one in Goa.
