St. Peter's Church, Melaka

(3.8/5 based on 170+ 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. Plan to see St. Peter's Church and other attractions that appeal to you using our Melaka trip generator.

  • It was hard to climb the long stairs while holding an umbrella. Church was built in 1521, but now that the roof is not the only wall. Francis Xavier was headed out to the mission to Japan from here. Also, Xavier end nine months remains are enshrined, then it is sent to Goa India. I guess on the Hill of St. Paul, great view of the sunny day.

  • I think it is already useless, tired up the stairs from the Netherlands square will take you. Association outline only, while hardly anything. Views of Melaka. Also good observation deck of the sunset in the evening.

  • 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
