View from the hill really spectacular. And the church very beautiful. Inside you can find art man who have 3 cats :) Also you can throw coin on the ground for luck.

This site and building are a part of Malacca history, so worth a visit. A very nice view from the hill. Unfortunately a few souvenir vendors are permitted on the site, and made the experience less valuable for me. Worth a visit, but mind the steps.

The architecture and history is pretty interesting. Quite a long climb up to the building though. There are some really old artifacts on display and its quite a nice place to take photos of.

Take your time to enjoy the view. Pay attention to the little details. I was surprised by how old some of the artifacts are.

Nice view over Malacca from the top. Very picturesque. Bought a beautiful picture of Malacca from a local artist on the way up. :)

A bit of a long walk to the top but well worth it (you can get a trishaw most of the way). The ruined church is interesting with great views over Melaka.

The remains of St Paul's Church is seen on St Paul' s Hill. A bit tiring yet it's worth the walk up the hill. Slabs with writings. There is a tunnel which is fenced up and has become a wishing well. Try your luck! The tunnel was believed to lead to St John's Hill during the Portuguese Dutch attacks. A... More
