The church is magnanimous and beautiful, not just from outside but also from inside. The evening prayers begin at 1850hrs. It's so beautiful, vibrant and peaceful that would to stay some more time than you planned. Must visit.

Place looks great from outside but its even better from inside, specially the carvings on the ceiling. Worth spending some time here, no pics are allowed inside though.

Peace of Church feel immediately once you enter the Building. Due to admin staff people disturb the peace by clicking photos ignoring the written instructions.

It is an old church close to the centre of Diu. Especially the wooden altar is worth watching. You enter without your shoes.

If you want to spend some pray time, then this is the perfect place for it. It is extremely peaceful and beautiful church. Also once you enter the church, the history of the church is mentioned inside for those who don't know how important historical place it is. Must visit the church if you are at Diu. Also next to...

A bright white wedding cake of a church but quite magnificent in its own way. The front of the building is architecturally interesting as are the shell arches within. The carved wooden alter recesses are amazing and the pulpit extraordinary.

A fantastic old church built by the Portugese, that still stands tall. One simply has to bow and sit in silence to feel that God is around you.
