St.Angelo fort is located in the cantonment area of Cannanore, its well inside the town. Bekal fort is bigger compared to St.Angelo, its located at about 10 kms from kasargod. Thalasery fort is very small compared suituated in the town, just drop by if your goin on the calicut- kannur highway. All are maintained by the archeological survey of india and are open from 8am to 6pm. but its pleasant to visit early mornings and during sunsets. Bekal fort can be explored through a narrow path right of the fort, incase you arrive early or late.
