Santa Cruz Basilica, Kochi Reviews - Write a Review
It is one of the 8 basilicas in the state. It's a fine piece of architecture built in mid 1500's by the Portuguese. It's ceiling is made of wood and has beautiful paintings on it which is very to find. A place one must visit in Fort Cochin, Kerala. Caretaker, Mr Vincent, is a humble gentleman to show you around.
Built originally by the Portuguese in 1558, later demolished by British, renewed in 1887, was proclaimed Basilica by the Pope John Paul II in 1984. First oldest diocese in Kerala. Magnificent interior. For praying & meditation.
It was really nice.. Don't expect much here in terms of architecture if that's your motive is... Luckily we reached here at the time of prayers on a Sunday evening and the experience was really nice..
Just drove by the church. Looks good from outside, did not have time to go in. But the place is easily accessible and it does have a parking facility
The church and campus are well maintained! The Santa Cruz Cathedral Basilica at Fort Kochi is one of the eight Basilicas in Kerala. Counted as one of the heritage edifices of Kerala, this church is one of the finest and most impressive churches in India and visited by tourists the whole year round. It is a place of devotion as well as a center of historic significance, endowed with architectural and artistic grandeur and colours of the gothic style.
