St Paul's Church Reviews
This historically significant ruins is worth a visit, as it is at intersection of Melaka’s colonial past. It’s a good 10 minute walk up, and views from the top are good. Can be crowded . more »
I worth the walk up the hill to visit this historical place. You will also have nice photos and nice view from here more »
Full points given to this great place - a beautiful historical site, located at the top of a small hill. Climbing up from Stadhuy to St Paul's Church, the scenes from afar were beautiful. Love the remains of the church. The many parts of the ruins made many photographic opportunities for many. Great place to visit.
Nice, short flight of stairs in the middle of town to get an unblocked view of the city. It is surrounded by other historical landmarks. As far as ruins go, it's quite well maintained. During the holidays and weekends, there are quite a lot of visitors so it may be hard to get a nice pic without some photo bombers. A good place to perch and watch the hustle and bustle of the townspeople. There's buskers there for you to enjoy too.
