Chapora Fort in North Goa is also known from Bollywood

Chapora Fort is a fortress on the hill of Chapora in North Goa and the name of Chapora was given to the fort by the Portuguese. The fortress was built a few hundred years ago and today there are only ruins left.

The Fort is a great afternoon trip destination for Goa travelers. The sunset view is great from top of the Chapora hill. You will also get to see Vagator beach in the South and Morjim beach in the North of Goa.
