  • It is a place that allows to have a good view of the city and the sea, but that's all. The Church has more than walls and has no great interest.

  • Really nothing much to see, other than the view. Does not take much time to explore the whole place.  more »
  • An old church, fairly well preserved and easy to get to by foot if staying in town area. Nice view of the city from top of hill  more »

  • A short easy walk up to a historic site. The partially restored derelict church is well worth visiting. The site appears to be well maintained, surprisingly lacking hawkers. The hill location offers a view of the old town and photo opportunities.
  • Gets crowded on weekend but the view from the top was nice and the cooling sea breeze do offer you a bit of comfort from the malacca heat.
  • Wow, an amazing old church atop the hill, historic and well cared for. An easy walk to get to, wonderful views, and the park it resides in was lovely. Very interesting, and you'll get lots of good photos.
  • It is located on the top of the hill. You can see Malacca from above here.
  • The place at the hill with beautiful ancient and scenery
