    The Portuguese Governors residence built in 1506 AD was bought in 1888 AD by the diocese of Kochi which became the Bishop's house. The compound is with lush greenery and building with large Gothic arches and pillars. The House has been subjected to alterations without changing the basic structure, the expansive corridors, living rooms, wooden staircases, stained glass windows, marble plaque near the main staircase and so on have retained their unique charm.

    The series of 36 paintings displayed on the large walls depict events in history that led to the formation of Catholic Church in Kerala, right from the arrival of the Portuguese to the establishment and growth of the diocese. An Indo-Portuguese Museum, located within the premises of the Bishop’s House, displays various artifacts collected from different churches which will reveal the Portuguese legacy in the area. The visit to the Bishop's house was really interesting.

    This bungalow is located just near the Fort Kochi Beach.
    The entry into the bungalow was restricted but one can roam around the bungalow.
    Try to go the end of the bungalow to get a good view of the beach.

    Doesnot take more than 10 mins of your time.
