Indo-Portuguese Museum

The Indo-Portuguese museum in Fort Kochi is a confluence of Indian and Portuguese art and architecture. The museum is divided into five main sections which depict the outcome of the confluence. These sections are called Altar, Treasure, Procession, Civil Life and Cathedral. The highlights of the museum include an altar made in teak (16th century) from the Church of Our Lady of Hope, Vypeen; a chasuble (19th century) from Bishop's House, Fort Kochi; a processional cross, which is a combination of silver and wood (17th century) from Santa Cruz Cathedral, Fort Kochi; and an Indo-Portuguese Monstrance (18-19th century), from The Church of Our Lady of Hope, Vypeen.
