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.

A Beautiful Church

A grand church which has beautiful wood work. More than a church its art work. Its beauty is in the details. Go and spend some time.

A quaint and busy church. Has some very nice feel about it but needs a Face lift. There is no one to explain the history and you have to get your info from a board put out in the compound. It is a Heritage attraction and worth visiting as it is easily accessible.

The Church is a very serene place and the moment you enter it you feel very peaceful. The old construction and the wooden carvings inside the Church are amazing.

We had been walking from the fort along the coast to Goa's three historical churches. First to St.Francis, then to St.Thomas and finally to St.Paul's, the masterpiece. On our walk through Diu we were impressed how clean everything was, very different from all the places we had been to in Gujarat (or most other places in India). Maybe it helped... More

This is an old church established in the 16th century by the Portuguese.Nice place to visit with family and friends and is also beside the museum and hence can be visited in one go.

A very beautiful Portuguese architecture church in heart of city. Very well maintained and beautiful interiors. Very classy wood work inside it. Ambience is too good.

Portugese architecture typical. Reminds of churches in Goa. Great ambiance. The engineering of the structure is another thing to check.
