We went there for sightseeing and it's good for pictures. It's full of culture and history. We celebrated Hari Raya near this church on that day with local people. They were very warm and friendly people.

It's beautiful, easy to access, just 400 meters up a hill from the Dutch square,and admission free. Bring your umbrella to protect yourself from rain /sun during the climbing. ( and... More

A little climb above the Melaka River is the old St. Paul's Church. It is just the shell of the old chapel, but the old tomb covers/gravestones are worth the visit. Also a view from what was the top of the old Fort Melaka.

We enjoyed the walk up the hill and around the church and graveyard. The wording on all of the headstones is particularly interesting with lots of poetic and descriptive ways of meeting your maker!

I loved this little stop. Great old structure. The foundation of Malacca today. Met some good people here. I'd recommend it.

Aithough you have to climb up to reach the top of St Paul Hill, the view is spectacular as you are able to see part of Straits of Melaka and the city. There are hstorical artifects and old tombs inside the walls of the church which provide historical information. There are also people selling souvenier and playting music

The walk up the hill is rewarded by an all round view of the city. The church is quite an atmospheric ruin
