Great views of Malacca from here. The church itself isn't much anymore. There are some very old Tombstones leaning against the wall for you to read. Well worth walking up for the view but if you have bad knees easily skipped.

This is the ruins of an ancient Portuguese church which had been used by the British as an a munitions store at one stage. Great to climb over the ruins but the view is fantastic. Well worth the climb

We have to climb some stairs to access this place. Inside the church, there are many tombs (but without the grave). This place is very peaceful and quiet. Down the hill, you can find A Famosa (a Portuguese fort ruins).

We have to walk up to the hill to reach this place. But it is not far. It's good to bring the kid there for experience
