Close on the crucial industrial town of Vasco da Gama lies the primary port of Goa, in Marmagoa. The town has some industries and not quite significantly else in addition to the highly dilapidated ruins of a fort, and an ironic background, which classifies it as ‘the city that in no way was’.

That is why, in 1685, the development in the fort began along with the founding of a township.
