Surrounded by beach this place is best for clicking pictures. The view around it is just amazing. Very ancient place and yes it is worth visiting.

Aguada Fort is great place to visit during the Goa trip. This location is part of many Indian movies. The lighthouse is good. There are many photogenic points for good clicks and selfies.

I went to this place in Jan 1st week and even though this place it hot and nothing to see there, Its actually a historic jail. no activities. I personally does not like it, if you like historic place so you can go there.
