Interesting spot to see. You could see the whole church fairly quickly, but interesting to go outside to see the ropes that were pulled to pull the huge cloth fans above the congregation.

This is a rather sweet little church. Pretty setting and worth a visit during our stay in Fort Kochi.

Quite close to the beach area.

This ancient church of St Francis became notable since the remains of Vasco da gama lay buried for several years before exhumation and relocation at Lisbon. The Church walls adore
tomb head stones and other inscriptions that would interest any history buff.

Visited during our half day tour of Kochi. Always a pleasure to visit historical places especially those with religious implications. The church has weathered time remarkably well and is an inspiration for those who revere the bold explorers from mankind’s past.
