‪בניין מעניין ללא יופי מיוחד ובודאי פחות מאשר קתדרלות ידועות אחרות בעולם. נמצא קרוב לרובע היהודי ולכן ניתן לשלב ביקור זה בסיור באזור.‬

Thank you very much for visiting our ancient Santa Cruz Cathedral Basilica, Fort Cochin, built by the Portuguese. The Church that you visited is the second Cathedral by the Portuguese, after the first one was used by the Dutch as depot for ammunitions and later destroyed by the British. The construction of the second Cathedral began in the year 1876 and completed in the year 1905, and was consecrated on the 19th of November 1905. The paintings, including the way of the cross you saw in the ceiling, were done by a Jesuit Fra Antonio Moscheni, an Italian Painter from Bergamo, Italy during the period of 1903 - 1905. What you wrote is true. When you are inside the Basilica and sit quiet for some time, you could feel a presence of unearthly bliss. There are two holy masses celebrated in English during the week, one on Wednesday evening at 6.00 and another on Sunday 5.30 evening. We have the first beautiful Portuguese Statue of Our Lady of Fatima, enshrined in the chapel close to the Basilica. The day after Christmas we begin the Feast of Our Lady of Fatima and ends on the 31st of December. God bless you abundantly. Fr Francis MJ Fernandez, Director, Santa Cecilia Recording Studios, Catholic Centre, Thoppumpady, Cochin 682 005, Kerala, INDIA.

‪לכנסייה מתחם גדול ופתוח. המבנה ייחודי ועמוד הזהב הגבוה מקדימה הופך אותו לאלגנטי. ביקרנו ב- 20 בפברואר 2020

פנים הכנסייה, ובמיוחד הגג, מעוצב היטב. ציור 'הסעודה האחרונה' מעל המזבח נעשה יפה מאוד.

היה שווה להקדיש זמן והמבקרים אסור לפספס את האטרקציה הזו‬

‪הייתי מפספס את זה אלמלא נהג רכב ששכרתי. (העובדה שהוא קישר אותי זה סיפור אחר). הוא עשה את החלק הזה בסיור.

מדהים זה מה שהייתי עושה היום. אני לא חוזר על שום דבר על ההיסטוריה שאפשר לקרוא בוויקיפדיה אבל הכנסייה פשוט מפוארת. אני רק מצרף תמונות שעשויות לדבר טוב יותר ממילים

שוב - חייבים לראות. רק 5 - 10 דקות הליכה מכנסיית פרנסיס ברחוב‬

‪בכנסייה המדהימה הזו יש שני חריצים נשגבים. החלק החיצוני לבן - שטוף ומואר להפליא והפנים בצבע פסטל. פנים הכנסייה ארכיטקטורה בסגנון גותי עם קשתותיו המדהימות ומזבח מעורר השראה. המזבח הראשי עוטר על ידי הצייר האיטלקי הנודע פר אנטוניו מושני ותלמידו דה גאמה ממנגאלור.
בהחלט מקום לבקר בו.‬

‪גם אם הכנסיות שאנו יכולים למצוא כאן אינן עשירות כמו כנסיות אירופיות, אני חושב שחשוב להיות מסוגל לראות כנסיות אינדיאניות מכיוון שהן מדברות על קולוניזציה, על ההיסטוריה ההודית.‬

‪לאחר שנשלח לשם על ידי חבר שהתחתן בכנסייה זו, עניין אותנו לראות שחתונה מתקיימת בזמן שאנחנו מבקרים. לאחר שנכנסנו לשיחה עם אורח חתונה, הוזמנו להצטרף ולהגיע לארוחה (שדחינו אותה). מקסים לראות כנסיה במרכז פורט קוצ'ין שהשתתפה בה היטב ומשמשת אותה משפחות צעירות.‬
