About Reis Magos Fort in Goa
Listed under the Goa Ancient Monuments and Archaeological Sites and Remains Act, the Reis Magos Fort in Goa is the oldest fort in the state. That’s right, it is even older than Fort Aguada. The fort is located on the banks of Mandovi River, in the Reis Magos village of Bardez. Reis Magos can roughly be translated from Portuguese to mean the Three Wise Men, from the Bible. Although the Reis Magos fort had fallen to ruins in the yesteryears, it has now been restored for serving as a Cultural and Heritage Centre and has become a must-visit for those going off the beaten track.
As far as the Reis Magos fort history is concerned, the fort was constructed in the year 1493, and served as an armed outpost for King Adil Shah. Back then, it was only a small structure, but when the Portuguese took over in 1541, they constructed the entire fort and a small church as well, later referred to as the Reis Magos church. The Reis Magos fort architecture is reminiscent of the Portuguese style of construction, seeing that a majority of the construction was carried out after the Portuguese arrived in Goa.
Right before the 1900s, it was used as a jail, and was later abandoned a couple of years later. With its restoration, an immediate requirement, the Helen Hamlyn Trust paid for the restoration, in collaboration with the Government of Goa and INTACH. After all of the restoration was completed, the fort was opened to the general public in mid-2012. Hope this quenches your thirst for Reis Magos fort information, something that is elusive and hard to find.

These two forts are roughly 9 kms away from each other. You can either hail a taxi or an auto to take you there, or drive yourself.
Although the slope that takes you up to the fort is pretty easily walkable, there are also battery operated vehicles that will take you there. Ask about the vehicles when purchasing your tickets.
