Santa Cruz Basilica in Kochi

Santa Cruz Basilica is a Roman Catholic Church in Fort Kochi and one of the eight basilicas in India, making it an extremely special location for tourists. They visit the Basilica to admire the architectural structure. The architecture resonates with the classic Gothic architecture that can be seen in many Roman countries. The ancient Roman culture amidst all the Indian buildings adds a special charm to it. The Church is approximately 500 years old and has a rich history, all of which began with the Portuguese settlement in southern parts of India in 1500. To express a sort of gratitude, the King of Cochin granted Portuguese viceroy, Dom Franciso de Almeida, the permission to have the Church built. Later, in 1558, the Church was exalted to the status of a cathedral. As of today, it is one of the 8 limited basilicas in the country. It is open to tourists from 9 am to 1pm and then from 3 pm to 5 pm. The best season to go to the Santa Cruz Basilica is from October to March. It is one of the celebrated locations in Kochi and a must-visit too.

    Siddhant's 4 days trip to Kochi

    Firstly co-ordination was not great , Hotel was not booked correctly , have to wait for an hour to get it confirmed under right names in Munnar .Hotel and food was good. Also On second location , Travel agent dint pick up calls on time and dint tell the driver the exact location to reach to Allepey and further blamed us for reaching there late. BoatHouse was not confirmed , so they sent us to Kumarkaon which is half an hour further from Allepey . Boat house was not clean with smell of pesticides , although food served overall was good. Good Trip messed up by the travel agent.

    The room that we got in Thekady was really really bad. Please don't ever suggest such rooms for anyone. Power point was not working,tv was not workingRoom in Munnar was good and the house boat in Allepey was okay not that great. Geaser was not there in the boat and it would better if it is even more clean. Driver was too friendly and polite and overall journey was good
