|Inner Bastions ( Light House at Fort Aguada)|
Fort Aguada Structure
The fort consists of a lower fort which provided safe cover for ships and an upper fort which consisted of more elaborate arrangements such as a light house, water storage tanks, ammunition storage and Quarters for sailors. The inner citadel is ringed by thick battlements and was protected by two hundred cannons overlooking a deep moat, which one still has to cross to get inside.
The lighthouse is located in the center of the upper fort and it initially used an oil lamp. It was later renovated and modernised in 1976. If one goes to Miramar Beach after 6pm one can sometimes even today see the light coming out of the lighthouse as it is being tested. The lighthouse was the temporary home of St Augustines basillica bell before it was moved to Our Lady of Immaculate Conception church at Panaji.
