Notes on the Geography of Peninsular India: Diu: Photo 9

world pictures Peninsular India: Diu




In the next folder, we'll look more closely at the fortress built by the Portuguese at the eastern tip of the island, but here's just a scene-setting view to convince you that the Portuguese weren't messing around. Several Portuguese churches are visible in the distance: the Church of St. Francis on the left (now a hospital), St. Paul's, and, just to its right, the almost painfully white St. Thomas's (now a museum). They were in the town proper, and the Portuguese built another wall on the inland side for protection from attack from the west. The view here is from the Knight's Tower and overlooks the St. Nicholas Tower or bastion, with its small chapel.
