Corjuem Fort

Corjuem Fort

The fortress, a few kms from Aldona, built by the Bhonsles of Sawantwadi in the 17th century and captured by the Portuguese has little to offer visitors except crumbling outer walls and an overview of the devastation caused by the gouging out of hills all around for iron ore mining.

Also in ruins is the fortress that once existed at Colvale.

The fort is open to the public every day of the week from 6.00 am to 7.00 pm. It is best visited in the cooler hours of the morning and evening rather than during the afternoon heat.


Located in Corjuem, it lies across the Mapusa river from the village of Aldona. The river is spanned by a picturesque cable suspension bridge which is quite the tourist attraction in itself. Corjuem lies about 12 km northeast of Panaji.
