I wouldn’t quite call it an annual pilgrimage, but it’s verging on that… I was recently in Goa, and I have this postcard for you:
Fort Aguada is a 17th Century Portuguese fortification. It was constructed in 1612 to guard against Dutch and Maratha forces. It also served as a reference point for ships coming from Europe, which would stop here to replenish their water supplies. ‘Aguada’ means ‘water’, and the cover of the fort’s massive freshwater storage area can be seen in the centre of this shot. Located behind this, the fort’s lighthouse – added in 1864 – is the oldest of its kind in Asia.
If you’re heading in this direction, I highly recommend a stay (or at least an evening poolside drink) at Vivanta by Taj, just a hop, skip and a jump away from the fort.
