Since 1956, the present building, situated on Marine Street, was allocated to the French Consulate General. The building and the plot have seen several owners and enterprises in the two century-long French rule. The plot was originally a cemetery on which a house was built in 1751 and was procured by the French government in 1840. The house has watched history unfold.

French Consulate-General is the only diplomatic mission in town with the coverage area of Kerala and Tamil Nadu. This colonial building has changed over the years and yet managed to retain some of its original 18th-century charm. The consulate is open to French citizens.
