Mormugao Fort in Goa
This fort near the internationally famous Marmagoa Harbour was
built to protect the harbour situated near the Vasco da Gama
town. Its work started in 1624.
It covered an area of six miles in circumference, contained
towering bulwarks, three magazines, five prisons, a chapel and
quarters for the guard. It had 53 guns and a garrison with 4
officers, and was an important fortress on the western coast.
Unfortunately, except the chapel and a portion of the boundary
wall, little is left of this fort.
