Back in 1535, this huge Portuguese fort must have been one of the most impressive sights in all of the land. It has a double moat, an array of cannons on the ramparts, and a lighthouse 32 metres high that is basically the highest point in the city. The fort was built to defend the city from the invasions of Mughal Emperor Humayun. Seen around the fort's premises are the remnants of Venetian style Gothic homes. Inside the fort is a famous chapel, the Chapel of Our Lady of Rosary, built in the 17th century. It has gilded wooden panels depicting scenes from the lives of saints. Photography is not allowed inside the chapel.

Diu Fort is a Historic place and an architectural symbol of Portugal Dynasty. Though Diu fort has not been maintained to an extent but still you will find many signs of their Portugal people. Best family and friend outing. Do visit the fort in the Morning since by afternoon the atmosphere gets warmer.
An amazing historical Portugese fort.Well maintained structure. No entry fee. Beautiful view from different angles. Chapels, light house and canons inside. A must visit for Diu tourists. You can even take a stroll up till the main entrance late in the evening to enjoy a wonderfully lit up view of the fort.
One of the major attractions of diu. Usually very crowded on holidays. The view from the fort is beautiful. Preferable time is early morning as it get warmer during day hours.
Very pretty. Cleanliness affected by inconsiderate crowds. Has amenities. No entry fee. Open from 9am to 6pm
