Tourists eager to explore the beach area may also be interested in the historical and cultural sites Candolim has to offer. The hotel's location is near the Aguada Fort, originally constructed by the Portuguese in the 17th century. The lighthouse, church and jail barracks are still very well-preserved. For more contemporary attractions, you may enjoy learning about the ocean at Dona Paula, where the National Institute of Oceanography is headquartered. Panjim City, the capital of Goa, is not far, and you may learn something about how spices are grown at the Ponda Spice Plantations.
