About Historical Places In Goa

Goa has one of the most rich and traditional heritages that stem from its Portuguese origins. There are several forts, churches and monuments you can explore in Goa on a historical tour here. One of the prime forts in North Goa is the Chapora fort that was built by Adil Shah, the king of Bijapur. You can explore the red laterite slopes and enjoy the view of the state from this fort.

Another fort that is historically significant is the Marmagao Fort that is about 33 kms from Panaji. This fort was one of the major hubs of intense maritime activity. Fort Terekhol is also quite a popular historical monument that served as a Portuguese maritime defence in the 17th century.

Among the historical churches are the Se Cathedral, the St. Francis Of Assisi Church, St. Augustine Tower or the Church Of St. Augustine and the Church Of Our Lady Of The Immaculate Conception. Besides this the Shri Shantadurga Temple in Kavlem, the Shri Mahalaxmi Temple in Bandora, the Aguada Fort, the Gate Of The College Of St. Paul, the Basilica Of Bom Jesus and the Cabo Palace are historical relics that you must visit on a trip to Goa.
