You have to climb before you see St. Paul greets you. Bring water if you needed it. The scenery is beautiful n greeny from up hills. The statue is the landmark. Go inside, you will find crafted stone of cemetery. If you love history, you will love this place. You will read that they buried around 1600.

Only less than 15mins walk from the famous jonker street, this church is on top of a hill, don't worry there are stairs. Better go here early morning because its getting crowded around 9am and so. Very very beautiful. The view was marvelous also.

If you are in Melaka take a walk up the hill to the old church. Watch the steps as some are uneven. There are plenty of vendors with water etc. Even though it is only a shell it still evokes a sense of wonder. There are some headstones in the back I don't know if they were moved there but... More

One of the oldest buildings built by the Dutch colonialists in Melaka in the 1600s. Much of the original structure still standing. A reminder of Melaka's colonial past. A landmark not to be missed when in Melaka.

It's a pretty quick tour and you can manage it on your own without any guide. Admission is free. Do read up on its history first before visiting to appreciate it more. The scenic view of Melaka town & Straits of Melaka is breathtaking.

I walked many stairs to get the top whit a wide view of city from the top. The stairs and other places were made of stone. Lots of trees and plants at this area and also the historical building were remained of Portuguese, all must visit.

It is worth the short climb up St Paul's Hill just to feel the breeze when you reach the top! The remains of the historic church are a reminder of the early Dutch settlers while the Governor's residence is also worth a visit. Stop to look at the graves and you appreciate just how hard life was as many children... More

It's a simple way up and it's totally worth it. The view is great at the top. Do wear sunscreen as it could be real hot in the afternoon.

Worth walking up to see the ruins. There's a great view from the hill. And you get to see a piece of history from the past.
