Cochin has a unique place in world history. Since the great flood of 1341, when Cochin became a natural harbour, it has been the center stage of early international trade between the West and the Far East. In the 13th century Chinese and Arabs were already trading at the port of Cochin. In 1500 AD the Portuguese led by Vasco da Gama arrived, marking the beginning of European colonialism. Subsequently Cochin has been dominated by the Dutch and the British. A large number of trading communities settled and 14 different languages were spoken at a time.
The church of Santa Cruz Basilica, the Hill Palace museum, the Jew Town, Museum of Kerala History, Cherai Beach and St Francis Church, the oldest European church of India are other architectural delights of the region.
