St. Paul's Church - Review
Of the three churches that were built by the Portuguese in Diu, this one is the most famous and best surviving. It was built in 1610, and is one of the best examples of Baroque architecture in the whole country. Visitors particularly appreciate the intricate woodwork in the church's interior. There are also some excellent examples of stucco decoration, supposedly carved by Indian silversmiths. The altar is made out of a single piece of Burmease teak wood, and has an image of the Virgin Mary. The congregation of the church has about 450 members. It is a tranquil place.

St. Paul's Church, Diu Reviews
It's an old catholic Church built some 400 years back by the Portuguese. Beautiful from both inside and outside. Peaceful when you sit inside.
This Portuguese church is very well known amongst its peers in the country for its detailed design and architecture, especially the intricately carved Gothic facade. Built in early 1600s and rebuilt in 1807, it has an unique Alter design and workmanship. Walking around the area, the nearby houses complement the style very well. However, the church could do with a better info board outside the gate to draw new visitors in.
Beautiful Portuguese architecture of the church. But it is severely dilapidated now. Still a very good church to visit and spend 10 minutes. The external area of the church is neat, green and pretty
A good place to visit in Diu, not maintained properly or say hardly, as an historical place liked the church
It's a nice church... When I went inside around 6:15 pm some prayer was going on... I sat there for a while and felt peaceful. Good for photography from outside as it's not allowed inside
