Cochin Tourist Destinations - Vasco House, Fort Cochin

Vasco House, Fort Cochin -

The Vasco House in Cochin is one of the most visited Portuguese buildings in the entire state of Kerala. Built in the early sixteenth century, this building is one of the oldest Portuguese residences in Fort Cochin. Believed to have been the residence of Vasco da Gama - the legendary Portuguese Explorer, Vasco House is a must-visit destination for tourists on tour to Kerala.

Vasco Da Gama was the first European to reach Kerala through the sea route. A group of Portuguese navigators led by Vasco Da Gama, landed in Cochin in the 15th century, and selected the site as their first settlement. Later, they built the historical Fort Cochin which houses several colonial buildings, commercial and trading centers, military base, Churches and residential buildings.

Vasco House is one of the main attractions of Fort Cochin and the structure is reflective of the distinguished culture of the Portuguese settlers who had richly influenced the history of Kerala and left their heritage to this land.

Vasco House is characterized by typical European-style glass paned windows and balcony-cum-verandahs evocative of the era.
