“Can get hot up there!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

When we visited in August it was hot. Like off-the-scale hot, so if you are wandering around this historic site at that time of the year let common sense prevail and wear a hat and have lots of water. The ruins are interesting and the view of Melaka from the site can be good if it is a clear day.

“Beautiful Ancient Church”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

gotta climb a lil bit to reach this place.but worth the stunning view from the top.
the church was very old and the wall looked very strong. and it's an empty building. you can see the view of Malacca from here. The Malacca river, Taming sari Tower,A.Famosa,etc can be seen from here.also enjoy the breeze!
spend at least 1 hour to enjoy and take pics.there are many good angles for photography :)

“It's nice to walk on a piece of history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

It is one of the key attractions of the town. It worth to walk around. It offers a view on Melaka and a possibility to step on the remains of the church built centuries ago and passed through a number of cultures, from British to Dutch to Portuguese.

“St Pauls Old Church ruins”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

St Francis Xavier was interred here for a while before being exhumed and sent to Goa India. There is a charcoal artist at the top of the hill who is exceptional.
