Palace view from the townhouses

This has a spectacular European built church. It has a spectacular view when you can find a rooftop window or along the river of Melaka.

This church is old but well maintained, and looks good too. Free entrance. Still held for services. Traffic here could be a problem, better to walk.

An old church well over a 100 years old. Not a lot of space inside and can get crowded during mass. If you're travelling by car, parking may be a problem so try to get a taxi / GrabCar / Uber instead. There are two levels, the upper one is more of a "balcony" type thing with less than a... More
