Escape To This 17th Century Portuguese Fort & Church Stay By The Goan Seaside

Goa has something to offer everyone and if a step back in time to the Portuguese Goan era is what you’re looking for, Fort Tiracol Heritage Hotel is just the place for you. Tucked away from the city life, Fort Tiracol is perched on the northernmost tip of Goa offering a mesmerizing view of the confluence of the river (Tiracol) and sea waters (Arabian sea) as well as a bird’s eye view of the Querem and Kalacha beach.

Once an armed fortress, built by the Maharaja of Sawantwad and occupied during the Portuguese invasion, it was revamped in the 17th century, in accordance with the Portuguese customs to include a church (St. Anthony’s Church) within the walls of the fort. Today the fort is an idyllic getaway for travellers and also serves as a silent testimony to Goa’s freedom.

The architecture and the interiors of the Fort Tiracol Heritage Hotel are at their core influenced by Portuguese design, with seven private, serene, and charmingly designed rooms suites that, in their own words come with “...unique Portuguese and contemporary interiors”. They also offer 2 luxurious suites that are spacious and have separate living rooms and bedrooms along with a verandah with a stunning view.

Inside their property, they also have a tavern which is a dining room, verandah, and bar that celebrates the warm, celebratory traditions of the old Portuguese taverns with a modern touch and has an extensive menu that seamlessly fuses Goan, Portuguese, Italian, and French cuisines.
