  • 德国式的建筑,琉璃玻璃从外面看一般般,从里面看很漂亮,在教堂里坐一坐,静静想点事情,可能就想通了些什么。出去旅游也是一场和自己的对话。 
  • It is one of those old church, small and intimate. I have been to many churches and this is the first one i saw with a St Michael Statue. I went to mass early in the morning at 7.30am and I like this ...  more »
  • 建筑挺有特色,和之前看到的其他天主教教堂有些不一样,建筑是为了纪念早年到东亚东南亚传教的圣方济,里面还存有一些圣物。现在从外面看还是感觉一直有维护,刷的漆很新,有时间还是可以进去参观下的。

  • One of the oldest catholic churches in town. This place is named after their patron saint St Francis Xavier. The church has 2 towers, both apparently holds 2 large brass bells, which cannot be seen from the outside. When you enter the church, you can see some adornment of stained glass. And if you notice properly the church grounds is shaped into a cross. There is a catholic gift store just in front of the church. It's a good place to visit.
  • Looks fabulous when walking on the road in front of it.
  • A nice and easily noticeable Catholic Church.
  • beautiful church in Melaka. It's on the left when you're on the bus
  • Old church at malaka
