If you are a history buff, you may love it. If you want to pass the time you may visit it. Nothing like must visit. Not even maintained properly. Plan to go in evening. Btw, the sunset from the top looks awesome and the sea-breeze is too good.

The fort was a Portuguese structure and well spread out. Nice Location, this has a jail inside. The view of Diu from the fort is awesome. And it awesome views of the ocean from near the lighthouse. There are some old cannons and a lighthouse with a nice 360 degree view.

Nice Fort with rich history.... but not very nicely maintained... its being used as jail, once you enter the fort you will see jail on your right hand side.... Cannons are not very well maintained...

A nice fort but lacks adequate route marking inside. A few well informed guides can really improve showcasing this quaint little fort.

Architecture is definitely not like other Indian/Mughal forts. A active prison inside, so there is a time restriction to visit, no ticket is required to enter the fort neither restriction over photography/using camera inside. Sea View is excellent specially during sun-set. Must visit if visiting Diu.

The fort was a Portugese structure and well spread out. Though it's not very well maintained which is a shocker, but it was definitely worth a visit. Once can easily make out its not an Indian fort , the way it was designed. It's one of the best attractions in Diu

Fort itself is good. There are places where great photographs can be taken but it was all so dirty and with such a bad smell, you cannot stand at a place just to get clicked for second.
