Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

“Excellent Place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2012

The old church is one of the beautiful places for tourists in Diu. The design is little different from the Churches you see in other parts of India.

“Needs to be restored”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2012

Seems like an aching structure currently. Although the facade is spectacular, its current condition would not impress many. It needs to be urgently restored so that the coming generation also could see the splendid Portugese architecure
