When holidaying at the cosy Club Mahindra Gir, Gujarat resort you may never want to step out. But we insist, do step out and explore the quaint patchwork that is Diu. While there are abundant hints of Hindu, Islamic, Zoroastrian influences on Diu, the most dominant influence is Portuguese. You can discover Portugal of a bygone era tucked away in this town. Step out and all you will do is Admire the Portuguese Architecture in Diu.

Striking churches, narrow winding lanes, town squares – all bear testimony to the Portuguese way of planning a town. St. Paul Church is the largest church in Diu. Built in 1601, this church is a wonderful example of baroque architecture. The Church of St. Thomas, built in 1598, has been converted into an archaeological museum since the 1990s. The Church of St. Francis of Assisi built in 1593 was converted into a government hospital long ago. Some of the houses with their windows and balconies make you wonder if you are in fact in Portugal and not in Diu! Once you have started exploring this delightful island, we will forgive you if all you want to do is stroll along the lanes and Admire the Portuguese Architecture in Diu.

Among other things to do and places to see while you enjoy a snug holiday at the resort at Gir, do visit the Portuguese Fort built in the 16th Century. So, whether you are an enthusiastic traveller, an amateur historian, or a budding architect; Admire the Portuguese Architecture in Diu and be ready to get enchanted.
