  • In Europe and especially in Italy there are churches that they would look down upon the Church of San Francesco in Kochi. If you switch from Kochi you might pay a visit to see it but certainly not worth a trip in Kerala. In this State, also due to the European domination, there are more churches per square kilometre than in Europe. Interesting is the tomb of Vasco da Gama that sick died in Kochi and was buried in this church.

  • A simple church that has been catholic, Dutch reform and Anglican. Vado da Gama's tomb. Though he was re- buried at home apparently.
