Fort Tiracol is the last piece of Goa’s territory in the north. Built by a Maharajah in the 17th century and it was conquered by the Portuguese in 1746. The fort became an important part of the Portuguese maritime defences and remained in Portuguese control until 1961. In 1825, during the Portuguese civil war, the fort served as a rebel stronghold and its garrison gave some hard time to the Governor.
