St. Peter's Church, Melaka
(3.8/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
Visit St. Peter's Church to discover the oldest functioning Roman Catholic Church in Malaysia, completed more than 300 years ago. Constructed by the early Portuguese colonists in the first decade of the 18th century, the simple yet elegant structure features a combination of Eastern and Western architectural styles. One of the building's bells dates back to 1608 and was brought here from an older Dutch church. Stop by to admire the largely unadorned interior, or stand in front and take a few photos of this historically significant shrine.

  • Suuuuuuper touristy. But suuuuuper cool! I think it's super important to visit it to experience some of the history in the area! 
  • Worth for the first trip but really nothing much left. Just like other historical attraction, normally you don't want to visit it the second time. 
  • Walk in height to see these ruins that tourists from the country love... It's free.

  • A simple and humble church by structure and design.Attended mass and organized CST programmes here during my student days.
  • The oldest catholic church in Melaka. The oldest church would be Christ Church. The church building itself looks moderate and modest. Not too many intricate sculptures or stained glass. Parking can be done within the church grounds.
  • Attended the Celebration of Mass on 29th April 2015, beautiful Church, love the stained glass!!❤️
  • I have not been here for more than 10 years. A lot of changes to the area around it
  • At St. Peter's Church, barring a solemn atmosphere and with faith to the holy night, I watched a reflection of the past. https://youtu.be/JfIFIGnK9xM
