  • 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
