The drive to Mayem is fascinating as each village unfolds, one more beautiful than the other. You pass small neat houses and large gracious sprawling mansions.
Time has not changed much here in these villages. The Corjuem Fort is an interesting stop to make. It is a low fort which has a 360 degree view of the surrounding villages. One can see as far as Panjim too. The cable bridge which is 235-metre bridge with its graceful pylon rising 45 metres into the blue sky is lit with floodlights and is already a major tourist attraction.
One cannot help but stop, take a deep breath and commit the memory of the view to the deepest recesses of your mind. This view is spectacular, centuries old hills, vales and mangrove lined Mapusa River with the graceful lines of the Corjuem Bridge highlighting the natural beauty of the place.
The fort was actually just a vantage point equipped with strong walls and cannon stations to repulse invaders. A strong square shape built of laterite steep slope at the four corners rise up to the turrets where the cannons must have been readied to rain shot down on pesky invaders. The fort is said to have been built in 1705 by the Portuguese and a small chapel sits to the right of the entrance itself.
Located just 500 metres from the Mayem Lake, Mayem Lakeview features an outdoor pool and a 24-hour front desk to assist guests at all hours.
