Review of Portuguese Church

Portuguese Church
Ranked #14 of 23 things to do in Malindi
Attraction details
Reviewed January 16, 2013

it was hard to find the church. We went to the entrance of the Vasco da Gama Pillar and refused to pay 500 shillings. Luckily, a guy there agreed to take us to the church (he had to unlock it). It was not close. We had to walk to the church from there. (which wasn't far) The church itself is tiny, thatched roof, and not used as a church today. I wasn't disappointed because I had no expectation.

I visited this site on accident. I was investigating the area and stumbled upon this. It's open to the public with no security or curator. it's very small. The plaque I read gave me more appreciation for the site than before, as I knew nothing of it. If you are into history, this is probably a visit you would not want to miss.
