Overview

On the fort side of Diu town is the island's last remaining fully-functional church, St Paul's. Completed in 1610, the church has an excellent baroque facade and a very fine selection of wooden panelling and furniture inside, including an extravagantly carved 400 year old pulpit.

I visited this place during my trip to Diu. The Church was very old and someone told me that it is built by Portuguese so from that point it was good. You will get peace here. Overall nice experience.

This is a nice historical Catholic Church, from the 1600’s. The only negative side is the failing care of the facility and the pigeons flying around the sanctuary.

The Church is located near to Diu Museum and it is an ordinary church but historic. The place is where you can find even localities come and offer prayers to Jesus. You can visit once for few minutes but not one of the major attraction.
