“Good to see”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

When you had choosen a hotel nearby then early morning walk to this church is great experience. It has a school inside so you will see childrens going for their classes.

And again good architect of the church from inside.

Must go

“Nice Church”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2013

Strolling trough Fort Cochin you should stop there for a minute. Great old Church, different from most I´ve seen so far. We were lucky seeing a wedding, really impressive.

“Interesting church as part of Fort Cochin tour”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2013

We got a rickshaw driver to guide us to all the different sights, and this Basillica was one of them. We were lucky because there was a wedding taking place on the same grounds, which was nice to see. The Basillica has some interesting murials. It's good to visit as part of the other sights, but not really worth a detour.

the church is huge and magnificent it is a good place to be to spend time in silence especially if you are the kind of person who likes some silence after a long travel
