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.

The St Paul's Church is a quaint church located in the heart of Diu. Quite a quirky little place located in a typical Portuguese locale.

St. Paul's church is one of the oldest church and reminds you of Goa and Portuguese era. While nicely painted from outside, internal maintenance can be improved. Its near to the Die fort and hence not much effort in visiting it.
