Chapora Fort Goa
In Goa, not only the beaches attract the heart of the people, but there are many beautiful churches and fortresses which attract people towards themselves. Chapora Fort also known as Shahpura. Adil Shah built it. Hence the alternative name for this fort is Shahpur. Which was the Sultan of Bijapur on the banks of river Chapora. The Chapora Fort Goa was built by the Portuguese in 1617 to protect its territory from the Hindu invasions.
The fort was built even during the famous fort Aguada but due to the invasions of the Hindus, Aguada Fort was destroyed and its ruins tell the story of its struggle. Finally in 1892, the Portuguese left Chapora Fort Goa. But still you can see the remnants of two supply tunnels used during the war and the invasions. Chapora is near Vagator beach in North Bardez district. Mapusa is easily accessible from the city, which is located approximately 10 kilometers away. If you are in the expanse of Baga, Calangut or Anjuna beach, then you will not have much time to reach here, just move towards north. You can also go to Panaji or Vasco with a rental taxi.

You will find only huge and irregular, red laterite stone walls here. Also, a gate, a citadel with cylindrical dams, can see some vague barracks and bushes simultaneously.
