The Corjuem Fort is not one of the biggest forts of Goa, but there is no reason for it to not be one of your go-to places. The fort was built in the year 1550 using laterite stones. In the 18th century, it prevented Maratha invasions by Rane Rajput and the Bhonsles. There are different features to observe there such as its gun ports, bastions, cannon, ramparts, defenders’ living quarters, etc.
It is surrounded by beautiful sweeping country views. People also admire the nearby picturesque suspension bridge while visiting the fort. Aldona MLA and the chairman of Goa Industrial Development Corporation (GIDC), Glenn Ticlo, stated: “I have been following up the issue of restoration of Corjuem fort. The fort restoration work has got technical sanctions, and now, the file will go for tendering, and will get the work done in this tenure.”
