“No enforcement of Heritage Site- A Shame”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

This site suppose to be a Heritage site, but there are many traders putting up their goods for sale inside the Ruins of St. Paul's, what a shame to the enforcement team & the traders don't look like locals

“Good view on hill top”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

Not a strenuous climb at all, everyone could do it. Good view of city from hill top. Walk down to Fort to take a good snapshot of the ruin on top.

“My favorite”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

Climb up this hill from any of the few entrances. The view at top is good. Ruins of Portuguese fort, old cemetery and other signs of past colonization of the Dutch and British are everywhere nearby.

“serene”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

loved: the view of the sea and the rest of malacca from the top of the hill; the musicians (portuguese descendants) who play lovely songs; the wishing well; the 1600s tombs (just goes to show how old the place is); the church ruins and the giant trees that have grown around it.

didn't love so much: the walk to the top of the hill... haha

“Nice view.”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

Interesting to see all the head stones, but I guess I've seen too many church ruins in my life so I don't get excited anymore.
