500 year old Portuguese cathedral ruin. Great place to take in some history. Nice views from the top of the Hill. Good place to take some photos. Can be pretty crowded at times with other tourists.

A good view from the top. Gives one a better understanding of why the colonial conquerors used the hill as a front line defence spot. One can ponder and realize on the influence of Portuguese, Dutch and then the British have had on Malacca’s culture.

I love the history here. Fascinating areas. I could do without all the smoking, but be ready to use a lot of stairs. Great for the legs. Some very nice views of the area from on top.

It was a warm day but worth the climb to the top to see the sights of Melaka and give you some perspective on the city.

You'll get a nice view on top. You can see the Malacca Strait and the city. It is a historical place and interesting to walk around there and imagine what life could have been like in those days.

Funny to see the mix of portuguese and dutch heritage in the tombs around the church. Also impressive to see, maybe due to dutch heritage, how much the malays pushed away the sea since this church was built on the hill.

Need to climb up the stairs to get on top of the hill but worth the climb. Besides you get to exercise! You can buy survenir sold at the top of the hill.
