Forts of Goa – Nanus Fort (Nanuz Fort)

Located in Satari taluka and stronghold of the Ranes, who launched a series of attacks on the colonisers in the 19th century, Nanus Fort is best known for having been captured by Dipaji Rane and his army, partly composed of farmers dissatisfied with a new regime of taxes, fought the Portuguese, taking considerable territory in Satari as well as Quepem and Canacona talukas.

Eventually the Portuguese were forced to concede defeat, and accept their demands – though they did not live up to their promise once the rebellion was called off.

Today however one can only see the remains of the fort. To reach the fort one has to walk a little hillock.
