About Malacca

Malacca is located in Malaysia on the Straits of Malacca. The city's history was deeply influenced by Zheng He’s voyages to the Western Ocean during the Ming Dynasty. It was successively colonized by Portugal, Holland, England and Japan. Thus, the architectural style here is very diverse. In 2008, Malacca and Penang together became World Heritage Sites. All of the shops and residences throughout the old quarter of the city have been subsequently restored to their former glory, thus making this historical city a living museum.

Church

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.
