Diu Fort

This massive, well-preserved Portuguese fort with its double moat (one tidal) must once have been impregnable, but sea erosion and neglect are leading to a slow collapse. Cannonballs litter the place, and the ramparts have a superb array of cannons. There are several small chapels, one holding engraved tombstone fragments. Part of the fort also serves as the island’s jail.
