Diu island, south of the Kathiawar Peninsula, on India's west cost, was part of Portuguese India until 1961 and is dominated by an atmospheric Portuguese fort. The island is about 7 miles (11 km) long and 2 miles (3 km) wide and is known for its magnificent Cathedral of Se Matriz and its idyllic beauty. You can also explore the St Thomas Museum of Christian reliquaries, enjoy the island's birdlife or the nearby Gir Forest.
Captured from the Ottoman Turks in 1535, the Portuguese built a fortress with the aim of controlling the lucrative trade routes through the Gulf of Khambhat to the Middle East. Diu was ruled by the Portuguese from Goa until 1961 when, after internal conflict, it became part of India.
