This Church is not as impressive as the ones in Goa which was also an erstwhile Portuguese colony. It was closed when we went there

Built in time when Portuguese ruled Diu. A bright white building well maintained. One must light a candle there. Hundreds of candles would be lightened already.

Another prominent sightseeing apart from Diu Fort is St. Paul's Church is also known as Immaculate Conception Church. It's construction was started in 1601 and completed 1610. Its architecture is one of the most elaborate Portuguese Churches of India.
