Despite being a ruin there is plenty you see inside the church, including many ancient memorial stones, some from the 17th century. The added bonus is a great view of Melaka.

The ruins of this church offer a great appreciation of the history of Melaka. Many craft vendors. Well worth the climb.

You would need to climb up the stairs to be able to reach the place. It has a nice view of Melaka once you reach the top, I don't think you would regret climbing because it has artifacts that shows how the World War had caused the damage. Interesting place.

Historical place from Portuguese era. It is a bit challenging to hike up the hill, so wear a flat shoes or sport shoes.

Ruins of an old church up on a hill so does need some climbing up-hill. Nice view and worth a short visit.

We visited the area as part of the free Visitors Centre walking tours. The guide explained the background to what we were looking at. However, even without a guide, there is enough information posated that you can learn about the place on your own.
