It is worth a look inside but read the history before you go. It was part of the visits we had to view. It was also connected to the Portuguese back in 1500. It has a nice interior

A v well preserved church which was replaced by a Catholic basilica. The artifacts from historical Kochi are well preserved. You can use your phone to take pictures but not a camera!

Stunning building inside and out. Well worth a visit. Very picturesque. Some very old pieces and well kept. Opens at 10.30 so don’t arrive early
Clean and tidy.

Completed in 1905 this Gothic style cathedral is located in the historic center of Kochi. It looks very much like any Roman Catholic church in Europe of the same time period (early 19th century). The tropical setting however makes it distinct. Special are the paintings and frescoes in the interior. Don't forget to look up.

A pity the original cathedral was demolished by the British. From the early 1500s only Saint Francis church is left.

The Basilica turned out to be much more than our expectations. It is well maintained, has impressive ceiling paintings, has gothic interiors and the highlight is a Last Supper painting. Must visit if you are interested in history and architecture across ages.

The architecture is good and it's well maintained. It's a school so don't wear short pants or skirts. 25 mins is enough to see this monument.
