The church is a ruin, but it is quite complete as all the walls are still there, it is just missing a roof. There are still lots of old elaborate tombstones and it was really interesting to visit.

Its a curious blend of Chinese origin traders and perhaps descendants of Portuguese and Dutch still live in the city. Food and music traditions prevail and most of the old city is now a tourist hub with churches and old buildings remnants of forts etc. The maritime museum is worth a visit.
The most interesting part is either side of the canal that is now wall art and restored buildings making it very vibrant and a pleasure to walk about. The night market is probably a big attraction into the night but didn't stay long enough to absorb all of it.

The oldest church building in all of South-East Asia, originally built in 1521.
A 2-minute walk away from Kota A'Famosa.

Truly a beautiful historical spot; picturesque with lovely views.

Was really amazed to know the church is neaely 400 plus years old and Saint Francus Xavier had himself visited here and was rested forvsome months before moving to Goa. To my opinion this could have been better restored aa I could see the walls had been scribbled. Small piece of history that too my opiniom should not be missed in your trip

A bit of a climb to the church, especially in the daytime heat, but well worth it. Of particular interest are the old gravestones and wall plaques covering the Portuguese and Dutch occupations.

Don't miss the hike up the hill and visit the ruins. Nice sweeping view of Melaka town from up top.

Time your visit before mid morning as it gets hot later during the day, Then treat yourself to cendol!

Nothing much but nice place for photos and great architecture with deep historical value.
It was breezy even on a hot sunny day.
Can oversee some part of Melaka town and the sea, hence the breeze.
There's a guy singing and playing guitar in the church. Good voice.
