This historically significant ruins is worth a visit, as it is at intersection of Melaka’s colonial past. It’s a good 10 minute walk up, and views from the top are good. Can be crowded .

There is so much to see in Malacca and a walk up to the church ruins is a must. It’s beautiful. With a few little stalls around the groups to grab a drink/ snack or souvenir. The views from up here a wonderful.

A nice historical hill which is most important in the history of meleka. The church stands as a witness to many changes in the later history of Malaya ( Malaysia)
