The St. Francis Church is the oldest church in India to have been built by the Europeans. The famous Portuguese trader Vasco da Gamais well known for reaching India from Europe by sea instead of by the usual overland route. The church is famous for being the initial burial place for Vasco Da Gama.

Later his remains were eventually taken back to Lisbon in Portugal. In spite of that, his burial spot inside the church has been clearly marked out and many people still visit this church to see this marked spot.
To visit and experience Kochi hassle-free, view kochi tourism.
