The reason to go to Melaka is the colonial history. This building is an important part of it, so hard to miss when viviting the old town.

The former church building is very artistic and older. I love the scenery in this church. I can see the view from the top. But to get to here must climb a high ladder

Historical church with tombs right inside the church of those who passed on in the 19th century. Very beautiful on the inside with the stained glasses and old structure of the church which is well maintained. A must visit when in Malacca.

Although listed as UNESCO heritage, this building seems like it is not properly maintained. Vandalism and missing plaques can be found.
