Historic jail at Aguada being developed as a tourist spot

Published on : Thursday, January 7, 2021

Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant said that the renovation of the historic jail at Aguada, which no longer houses prisoners, is being developed as a tourist spot. It will be completed in March this year and would be opened for visitors thereafter.


About the renovation of the 17th-century structure, Sawant said that around 90 per cent work of the project has been completed.


“We will complete the project in March this year after which it would be an important tourist attraction,” Sawant said.


The Portuguese-era structure, part of the historic Aguada Fort at Sinquerim village near the Mandovi River in North Goa district, will have a museum depicting the state’s liberation struggle.


Two special cells dedicated to freedom fighters T B Cunha and Ram Manohar Lohia, where they were jailed during the Portuguese rule, will feature in the tourist spot, Sawant said.


The iconic fort, which is a popular tourist destination, is being developed at an estimated cost of Rs. 22 crore under the Centre’s ”Swadesh Darshan Scheme”.
