“basilica”
Reviewed February 1, 2014

Our tuk tuk guide brought us to this cathedral, and a wedding had just taken place, bride sitting in the car in the forecourt. Photography allowed, we entered the church, and its architecture and beauty are very much to be admired. Very definitely a must-see on the Fort Kochi island.
