Trip Planner: Asia / India / Kerala / Ernakulam District / Kochi (Cochin) / Santa Cruz Cathedral Basilica
Visit one of the eight basilicas in India at Santa Cruz Cathedral Basilica, a church many hail as one of the best in the country. Although the Gothic-style church was originally built in 1558, the British destroyed it, before it was rebuilt again the the 19th century. Behind the plain white exterior, you can expect to find pastel colors and columns painted with frescoes and murals once you step inside. Look up and you'll see the ceiling paintings depicting scenes from the crucifixion of Christ. If you prefer to participate than admire, join in one of the church's regular services. Put Santa Cruz Cathedral Basilica and other Kochi (Cochin) attractions into our Kochi (Cochin) trip itinerary planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

Beautiful church with an even more beautiful history. Never get tired of admiring it, both from the outside and the inside. Make it a point to see this church if you are in Fort Cochin.
An ancient Latin American church, which serves as a place of religious worship. It's open for visitors on all days , except during the time of liturgical service. A great piece of architectural work is exhibited inside the church.
