St. Angelo Fort Kannur

Facing the Arabian sea a little away from Kannur town is the St. Angelo Fort. Built by the Portuguese and later modified by the Dutch, the fort remains in good conditions today. What started off as a trading station with permission from the Raja of Kulathanadu, later became a  Fort under the Portuguese Viceroy Francisco d' Almeida, only to be captured by the Dutch and later by the British
