Need to walk. Bring umbrella and sunglasses. Not really friendly for those with stroller or on wheelchair. Nice place to embrace the Melacca history from 1611 till today.

Walk up the hill at day time to have Melaka view. Compare the landscape between the pass and current days... Enjoy the cool breeze and know more about Melaka history here.

This is the ruins of the St Paul’s Church and the statue and other remnants from the early 16th century. It is situated on a hill , about 200 steps , and offers a beautiful view of the town .

As part of the heritage tour, St. Paul is a small old church. Worth a visit. The whole area can be explored on your own.

If you are in Melaka you will need to do this walk. It can get crwded and hot so if you can, come earlier in the day or just before dark

I was debating with my pal, if we should take the time and effort to climb up to see the ruins, because it was a typically warm and humid tropical day. And boy did I not regret doing so. It's situated behind the Christ Church,...More
