The fort is the center attraction of Diu. This fort is the best place to visit when in diu !!! The history behind this fort is worth knowing. It is such a huge fort that it would take atleast 2.5 hours to see the whole place.

Unlike most other forts it's the unique seaside location of this fort that brings in a different enchantment as one walks up the short road to enter the fort.A strategically placed cannon of long past directed towards the sea tells one of how invaders were kept at bay.Really worth a visit.

The fort is the main attraction of Diu. It is built almost 600 years ago. Study a bit of history to understand the importance of Diu. It is worth exploring

This is 450 years old Fort, carries a rich history of India especially for this part which was ruled by Portuguese. The administration may charge an entry fee and maintain it better.
