The church, which is in ruins sits on top of this hill. There are lots of steps to climb. The church has no roof and leaning against the walls are large grave headstones that used to be on the original floor. Being on a hill...More

Loved the rich history, obviously several cultures have been present in Malaka and some of the buildings tell the stories of their time

Views are nice, there's also a breeze which was nice cause it was sooo hot! Nice to walk around, historic site, small market and music.

Very old ruins in fairly bad conditions, full of Chinese tourists and resellers of plastic goodies. The gardens around are filthy with skinny cats awaiting some food and the grass full plastic bottles and various rubbish. Not much to be enjoyed I am afraid.

The ruins of St. Paul’s Church are at the summit of St. Paul's Hill. Built on the site of the last Malaccan sultan’s istana (palace), it was constructed by Portuguese fidalgo (nobleman) captain, Duarte Coelho, in gratitude to the Virgin Mary for saving his life...More
