From here, stroll along Jew Street to reach Paradesi Synagogue, noting that the buildings may seem worn out but the street keeps remnants of its glorious past thanks to various spice shops and curio souks. Tthe oldest active synagogue in this part of the world, Paradesi Synagogue (closed on Fridays and Saturdays) opened in 1568; its interior features brass columns, intricate teak woodwork, Belgian crystal chandeliers, Torah crowns made of gold and gems, and Chinese porcelain floors.
Next you'll be transferred to the Fort Kochi area. Visit Santa Cruz Basilica, which dates back to 1505, and stop by the Church of St. Francis, the oldest European church in India. Then head to the water to see the Chinese fishing nets, which are fixed to land by mechanical structures that hold out the large nets, followed by a visit to the Maritime Museum (closed on Mondays and public holidays) and the Hill Palace of Tripunithura (closed on Mondays), a museum that houses historical Kerala artifacts.
