The Reis Magos fort was built in 1551 by the Portuguese rulers as a residence for viceroys and later converted to a fortress to protect Goa at the narrowest point at the mouth of the Mandovi estuary. The Fort stands on the north bank of the Mandovi at Reis Magos, and is very much visible from Panjim on the other side of the Mandovi river. It was enlarged subsequently on different occasions, and finally re-erected in 1707. It was also occupied briefly by the British army. In 1900 the fort lost its defensive role and was used solely as a prison until recently in 1993 when the prison was closed down and the fort abandoned. In 2007, a tripartite agreement was signed between the Govt of Goa, INTACH and the Hamlyn Trust to restore the fort as a Cultural Centre. The Fort was thrown open on 5th June 2012 with a new restored look to as it was in 1707.



The Reis Magos Fort has been completely restored as a cultural event centre. The fort offers various venues within its walls to house any sort of wedding or event. With ample parking space, breathaking views and modern age amenities, the Reis Magos Fort offers a completely different event experience.



The Citadel is the main outdoor courtyard venue of the fort which includes the eastern and western sentry towers and cannons. The Citadel offers the most breathtaking views from the sentry towers and also makes for a quaint wedding venue with the three Indo-Portuguese buildings lit up. The venue can be creatively used for weddings and events and can accommodate upto 200 guests comfortably. The Citadel is best suited for wedding ceremonies and candid photo shoots.



The Bastion is the lower level of the fort which is closer to sea level. The Bastion makes for a wonderful waterfront venue which can be used for any kind of event and can house over 200 guests comfortably. The bastion has special areas for catering, lavatories and covered areas and is logistically the best location at the fort to plan an event.The Bastion is best suited for cocktail and reception parties.



The Reis Magos Fort also offers all three of its main building halls for smaller events, workshops and exhibitions. These are all at the same level as the Citadel. The two halls also have an adjoinding lookout verandah which gives you a spectacular panoramic view of the coastline of Panjim and the Mandovi river.
