Although one has an uphill walk, most people will be able to reach the ruined church at the top of the hill which symbolises Melaka. There are good views of most of the sights and one can soak up the atmosphere of past generations of Dutch, Portuguese and British

The church on St Paul's Hill is a short walk and not too arduous. Once there there are great views. The Church is ruined (no roof) but still very interesting. The tomb stones which are paced against the walls date back to the mid 17th Century. The rocks that it was constructed out of appear to be volcanic!. Once at... More

Chanced upon this place as my Friend and Inwere trying to look for interesting places to visit. The climb up the steps were tiring and the steps are steep. The view from the top was beautiful and we snapped some photos there. The interior of the chapel is like ruins, nothing much to see in my opinion.

This place is alternative for budget traveler to get city views from above. Instead of riding Menara Taming Sari and paying amount of money, we can climb to the top of St. Paul's Hill. On the top of hill there are ruins of beautiful old chapel. Its a great combination views of modern and historical Melaka.

We went there for sightseeing and it's good for pictures. It's full of culture and history. We celebrated Hari Raya near this church on that day with local people. They were very warm and friendly people.

It's a ruin of a small church, and what's left is the walls of the church, a bell tower, and some headstones of the Dutchman buried on its ground. It's beautiful, easy to access, just 400 meters up a hill from the Dutch square,and admission free. Bring your umbrella to protect yourself from rain /sun during the climbing. ( and... More

A little climb above the Melaka River is the old St. Paul's Church. It is just the shell of the old chapel, but the old tomb covers/gravestones are worth the visit. Also a view from what was the top of the old Fort Melaka.
