About St. Francis Church

St. Francis Church, Kochi, in the beginning constructed in 1503, is the oldest European church in India and has remarkable ancient importance as a mute witness to the European colonial conflict in the subcontinent. The Portuguese explorer Vasco da Gama died in Kochi in 1524 while he changed into on his third go to to India. His frame became at the start buried in this church, but after fourteen years his stays have been removed to Lisbon. Vasco da Gama, who found the ocean route from Europe to India, landed at Kappad close to Kozhikode in 1498.
He become observed by Pedro Alvares Cabral and Afonso de Albuquerque. They built Fort Emmanuel at the Fort Kochi Beach with permission from the Raja of Cochin. Within the fort, they constructed a church with a wood shape, which was dedicated to St. Bartholomew. The neighbourhood is now known as Fort Kochi. Francisco de Almeida, the Portuguese viceroy, was allowed, in 1506, by the Raja of Cochin to reconstruct wooden buildings in stone and masonry.
