Heritage walk of Fort Kochi

The historic island settlements of charming Fort Kochi and Mattancherry are a veritable treasure trove of architecture. Here one finds tight streets and colonial heritage – the Portuguese, Dutch, and British have all passed through and left their mark – and in the present day a diverse wealth of communities, spanning a dozen religions, originating from every corner of India. The best way to explore this rich history and local life is on foot with a knowledgeable local guide. Wander the storied streets with your guide to discover some of the Jewels of historic Kochi including the Mattancherry Palace, built by the Portuguese and dating from 1555, and the St Francis Church, the burial site of Vasco De Gama, the first European to reach India by sea.
