Very touristy, but worth the walk in Malaysias heat. A good view of Melaka from the hill and the church is historic

After Red Square, you can reach St.Paul's Hill by walking. Can see the nice view of the city from there and when you go down from this hill, you can reach A Fomasa and Sultan Palace.

Follow the steps and climb up to the hill. Absolutely worth the effort when we reach the top. We felt like we were in overseas because we can hardly find this kind of churches locally. The surroundings were quiet except those tourists taking photos. If you have ever visit Port Arthur in Tasmania, this church has the similarity. The only... More

I've been to many places but this is the first time seeing souvenir stalls inside the hall of the church. Visitors are there to see ruins and these stalls shouldn't be there. Overall, the place is nice especially to those interested in history and heritage. Worth the climb. Local authority must do something by relocating them somewhere else.

It seems that the municipal government of Melaka allows vendors to pick any spot to set up their shop, even if they are in the way of the tourists to read the displays.

Some actual graves have been " transferred " back to Holland or Portugal. Just a short climb up the hill via well maintained steps, to view the City n coastline... More

This ruin is a short stroll uphill from the Dutch square and provides beautiful views over the city. It was clear and we could see the mega tankers in the sea.

Well worth the walk up the hill. There are plenty of things to see on The way up and when you get to the top and the view is wonderful. The historic ruins are very interesting.
