Went to this fishing village near the sea in Christmas season afternoon, sadly there was little to see, everything was very quiet. But you could feel Christma's was on the air, as every most of the doors would have Christmas or christian decoration celebrations. Notice the most of the streets and houses have portuguese names.

Down the hill from St Paul's Church is a small square with a 16th century Portuguese gate. Small but elaborate with a large armorial crest. There are some nice Colonial mansions nearby and it the square is close to several museums and the Dutch Cemetery. Worth a brief visit and it is the last vestige of the Portuguese in Melaka.

Its a nice place to walk around and get a feel for the mixed heritage of Malaysia. Definitely something to see in Malacca!

Interesting for the architecture and for people watching, but hardly a must-see in Melaka. Walk through on your way elsewhere.

Located within the Portugese Settlement, this square is also known as Little Lisbon. The square is the heart of Melaka's Eurasian community and occasionally cultural performances are held here. A nice place to have a meal and rinks and to enjoy the view over the Straits of Malacca.

Seafood price is reasonable. The shop owners tries to get you to their shop but they are quite harmless. The sea breeze and view is nice except that you won't be able to see the full sunset anymore because of the new Hatten construction that obstructs your view. if you are looking for sea breeze and a place to just...

It's interesting for portugueses people. There are people talking as portuguese were talking 500 years ago. I wouldn't reccomend for others but, for portugueses, it's a must:)

We wandered down here from our hotel. The square is full of restaurants and their is also a nice walk along the seawall. We ended up eating at one of the restaurants where I had a delicious fish.
