  1. lovely pictures! I have been to Ries Magos too…2 years back! The restoration work has been done pretty well! Although now it looks more like a museum, the large number of caricature by mario in basement reflecting Goan life are not to be missed. Surely Reis magos is amongst the best restored forts in the country! I hope you also visited the church located right next to the fort?

    1. Hi ARV! many thanks for your visit and detailed comment 🙂 .Yes Mario’s caricatures were humorous :-D. As you can see from my pictures, another exhibition “Goa – real and imagined”, was also there. One thing I liked about fort was that there were plenty of information boards which makes the visit fruitful.

      But I guess I missed the church!!!

      1. The church located right next to the fort is supposedly as old or older than the fort. it’s actually beautiful from the inside. It’s one of the oldest churches of Goa. Although from perspective of history most of forts in Goa don’t have much to share
        They mostly used as outpost, garrison or jail and in some cases to fill the ships with water. so I guess the government didn’t have much option than to create gallery!
