A part of the Chapora Fort in Goa. This is an 18th Century fort, situated on top of a hill near Vagator Beach.
The climb to this fort up the hill is one steep, but fun climb. 🙂

This fort has a history of being moved back and forth between the Portuguese and the Marathas.

Info for Hindi film lovers: One of the most important scenes of the 2001 movie “Dil Chahta Hai” was shot at this fort.
