It lies just a few minutes offshore from the mainland of Gujarat, yet has retained the feel of an island in the Mediterranean. Nothing can quite prepare one for the treasure-trove of Portuguese colonial period architecture in downtown Diu, the absolutely superb Baroque facades of churches and public buildings, the bungalows of the Christian quarter with their pastel shaded walls and truss roofs, and even the havelis of the Zampa area, which are rather European in design-trellised terraces and galleries, classical columns, broad verandahs, porticoes-then Gujarati.
