This is one of the main tourist places in Kochi. This area has several iconic buildings that are reminiscent of the colonial history of the city. The exclusive architecture is attributed to the Portuguese, Dutch, and British colonists. Relive the past at Indo-Portuguese Museum, St. Francis Church, Fort Emmanuel, Bastion Bungalow, Vasco Da Gama Square, Aspinwall House, Chinese Fishing Nets, Dutch Cemetery, and Santa Cruz Basilica.
After a day of touring, relax at one of the many restaurants or cafés in the area. On the top of the list is Dal Roti – it serves local dishes, Oceanos Restaurant – prepares seafood with the local flavours, and Quality Bakers – enjoy their speciality, Dutch bread called bruder. Spend some lazy time sipping a cup of fresh coffee at Fort Kochi’s cafés such as Teapot Cafe, Kashi Art Cafe, or Loafers Corner Cafe.
