“V Nice place to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2013

Small yet historic place that must be viewed. It is a very nice location overlooking Melaka city. The Femosa fort ruins are down the hill. Parking is a problem usually and mainly in holidays. May be you need to park in nearby mall

“Tests your thigh muscles”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

Climbing up the hill is a feat itself,particularly for people like me who don't exercise often.stairs are a bit steep in the beginning, but once you reach the top, the view is amazing.inside are some old Portuguese headstones with descriptions.a tall statue of St.Paul at the entrance.a great location to test your photography skills.

“Crowded in Church Ruin”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

I went there on Sunday and it was very crowded in the ruin. Because there was nothing much to see, I stayed there only 3 minutes.

The high ground in Old Malacca, historically important throughout its life of different Colonial occupants . Great views over the Harbour, the town , & the Malacca Straights.

We timed our visit with the setting sun, awesome!

“Worth the walk to the top of the hill.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013

The old Portuguese headstones in the chapel are incredible. Some are over 400 years old! A beautiful old building and lovely views from the top. Free, but we would have paid for the privilege.
