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.

It was an unique experience to visit St.Paul's Church, The entry to the Church it self was very imposing , the wood carved door , the hand painted stations of the cross, the exquisite wooding alter , magnificent ceiling. It is really a place worth visiting would request the Govt to allocate funds for maintenance and restoration

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.

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.

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.
