St Peter's Church is the gratifying result of a laborious climb of St Paul's hill. Alright, it wasn't that bad a climb, but we went on a sunny day in June so we were drenched with sweat when we got to the top. There were a bunch of gravestones that were chilling to read, souvenir peddlers and a beautiful view... More

The Church is located in Jalan Bendahara northeast of St.Paul's hill,and not to be mistaken with the ruins of St.Paul church on the top of the hill, near the Dutch Square . Many photos in this review , are the ruins of St.Paul's Church. The St.Peter is built in 1710 , said that this was the only Catholic Church in... More

This church is famous for its Good Friday candlelight procession when it has held many decades already. All walks of life ( including non believers ) will turn up in force to participate and to pray for their own intentions ( including those from afar such as Singapore and Europe ). Nevertheless, this church is also frequented by those who... More

Site with history. Is a bit degraded, but it's worth going there. It has a good view where you can take good pictures.

Do this as part of the historical trail, especially together with the surrounding attractions. There's a whole lot of history behind this building and it's surroundings, so do read up if you can beforehand. It was very peaceful visit, somewhat sombre at the same time. A good insight of the early lives. It was rather comical to hear some of... More

Still people occupied in their Sundays prayers - where this church active in daily morning mass and opened to tourist. I like the building cleaning and well maintained with olden days color.

For Catholics, a very modest and plainly decorated church. But a peaceful place to visit and wander around.

Unlike KL, Malacca has a rich history... this ruined church first built by the Portuguese is an example of that. The view from the top is worth it but take some time to poke around. There are burial stones of the young men (and many women!) who died here as colonials. The British colonials are also buried here and in... More

A great way to spend an hour on the way into (or out of Melaka) a visit to St Peters church - yes it is a ruin but there are interesting hawkers, painters and other characters, including the occasional begger - (I am sure a RM or two would not go) unmissed around it. When we went there after climbing... More
