Places to Visit

 
  Aguada Fort  
  Fort Aguada is a well-preserved seventeenth-century Portuguese fort which is located just 18 kms away from South Goa. Fort Aguada was the chief defence of Portuguese against the Dutch and Marathas A freshwater spring within the fort provided water supply to the ships that used to stop by and hence the fort got its name Aguada (means water). A 4-storey Portuguese lighthouse lighthouse is situated nearby which is the oldest of its kind in Asia. The visiting hour is 16.00 to 17.00 hrs.  
     
  Arvalem Caves  
  The celebrated caves of Arvalem, belonging to a remote era, are in a westerly direction, 100m away from Sri Rudreshwar Temple and are of archaeological interest. These caves were en-carved in the 5th or 6th century AD and possess a mythical background. Some are of the opinion that these caves have been carved by the traveling Buddhist monks. These caves have 5 compartments among which the middlemost compartment holds the 'Linga', which is till today regarded with great respect An inscription written in Sanskrit and Brahmi characters of the 7th century is noticed on the Shivalinga with a circular top in cave no. 2. It reads as "Sambalura-vasi Ravih.  
     
  Fort Cabo da Rama  
  Unlike many other forts in the state, the Cabo da Rama fort predates the Portuguese invasion of Goa .Portuguese took control of it in 1763. Although the fort itself has fallen into decay of sorts, the western side of the fortress, where the cliffs drop sharply to the sea, provides a panoramic view of the surrounding areas, makes a trip here worthwhile.  
     
  Arvalem Waterfalls  
  The majestic Arvalem Waterfalls is located Nine kilometers south of Bicholim town,. The beautiful fall, sheds its exuberant silvery showers with a head of about 70ft., forms a sizeable lake at the bottom which offers a temptation to seasoned swimmers. The fall is best seen when in full flux, just after the copious monsoon, when it presents a raptures, ravishing and riotous aspect. The best time to visit the Arvalem Waterfall in Goa is between September to December
