Notes on the Geography of Peninsular India: Diu: Photo 51

world pictures Peninsular India: Diu




One of the very few Portuguese monuments to survive, in this case in the park adjoining the Collector's office. The figure is Nuno Da Cunha, son of Tristan. Nuno attempted to conquer Diu in 1531. He failed but later, from 1535 to 1538, he became governor of all the Portuguese possessions in India. Happy ending? Not quite: he was drowned in a shipwreck off the Cape of Good Hope.
