The lush forest around Patua Fort - has reclaimed much of the fortification’s stone walls and buildings.

Massive tree roots engulf the ancient stones; creating a sense of mystery and making any visitor feel like a true explorer.

The fort has three main gates and upon entering you will find old graves, ruins of an old mosque, tunnels, old cannons and a big gazebo. The fort is full of secret hideouts, where the royal family and people of Tomia would flee in case of attack. From the top of the fort, you can also take in the magnificent views of the sea and the lowlands of Tomia. The site is also used for a diverse range of festivals and cultural events.
