They say this is where Vasco da Gama had his house when he ended up in Kochi. Personally, I do not know why vasco da gama would choose to stay here but he ain't here no longer to ask him

“Thake the picture!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

This is the ideal place to watch fishermen use the Chinese fishing nets and where you can enjoy delicious seafood. It you are thirsty, drink the tender coconut water... and then eat the inside with a 'spoon' the vendor will make on the green coconut shell.

“Buy spices.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

Buy spices from the shop just in the square. Love and peaceful surrounded by old buildings in Eclectic colors..
Try the coffee shops or even restaurants for local food.
