Among the places of tourist interest, the Fort of Diu occupies a prominent position. It is an expansive and imposing structure, situated on the coast of the island. The fort commands a magnificent view of sea. It was constructed between 1535 and 1541 AD.
The fort is skirted by the Sea on the three sides. On the fort stands a giant Light House. Several canons still stare menacingly from top.
