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.

  • From Netherlands climbed loose about 200 m away. Francis Xavier's remains were enshrined in temporary, greets the statue of Francis Xavier. Not rotted away the roof of the Church, the wall seems to be original. The presentation is given as donation coins, and remains well behind. It is one of the few spot overlooking the Straits of Malacca.

  • I just went there a few hours ago and I found the Church very peaceful and a lovely site to visit..... 
  • This is the only part remaining to be precise, rather than the full Cathedral Cathedral. Position the top of the Hill, walk to the La hate is somewhat difficult, but the scenery is absolutely beautiful in Malacca city. And the Cathedral the Cathedral, but in the vicinity of many street artists have their own style of this beautiful landscape recreates them. This came to around around the open-air museum to be inactive. About why this is the must see Malacca is a place that is.

  • 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
