Fort Kochi

Fortkochi

Fort Kochi, located around 13kms from Ernakulam city, is one among the three main urban regions that constitute the Cochin Corporation. The other two regions are Ernakulam and Mattancherry. This important trade center in Southern India was formed after a major flood in AD 1341 and became the first European township in India when the Portuguese settled here in the 15th century. In AD 1663, the town was captured by the Dutch and the British took over in 1795. Fort Kochi is a haven for seafaring visitors, dotted with attractive sites like Vasco Da Gama Square, Santa Cruz Basilica, St.Francis Church, VOC Gate, Bastion Bungalow etc. It has been declared a heritage destination with its colonial buildings against the backdrop of the sea.

This vibrant cultural center can be easily assessable by bus from Ernakulam which takes nearly an hour or by ferry that takes about 20 minutes.
