St Francis Church
At Fort Cochin, is the oldest Church in the subcontinent, established by the Portuguese Franciscan friars in 1503. It became a Protestant Church with the arrival of the Dutch & an Anglican Church after the British occupation. Vasco da Gama was buried in this churchyard.

Fort Kochi beach
A stroll along the beach, particularly at sunset with the chinese fishing nets and sailing ships in the background, is a memorable experience. Many European style bungalows can be seen along the shoreline. The coastal stretch has loads of small stalls, which make on demand mouth-watering traditional cuisines using freshly caught fish.

Museum of Kerala History, Kalamassery
The museum has on display spectacular audio-visual exhibits depicting the history and culture of Kerala along with many life size statues of many famous personalities and several paintings depicting Kerala history.
