Additional Information


The St. Paul's Church was built in 1521 and built for the Portuguese. The famous missionary St. Francis was buried here, and the statue of the priest of Franciscans was placed in front of the church. After the Dutch occupied Malacca in 1670, the church was used as a castle, and many bullet holes were still visible on the outer wall today. In 1753, as a cemetery for the Dutch aristocracy, some tombstones with Latin and Portuguese are still preserved.
