Was full of awe visiting this site on a cloudy drizzly morning. The view from atop the hill was beautiful. Could imagine the days when it was a living church overlooking the sea. Felt it could be better maintained and preserved for future generations. Well worth visiting for historical buffs!

We visited at night (which could be quite scary + not too safe, so would recommend staying in groups and stick to lighted areas) but it has the least amount of people and no sun! Overall was a nice walk through the historical parts of Melaka.

Grab a drink (or you can buy with the vendor) when you climbing up the hill. *Staircase alert* DON'T WEAR HIGHHEEL !!!! Sportshoes is great enough. It's a really good place to take photos and rest while enjoying the view of Melaka

Though the weather was really humid , we went up the hill for the view … and it was not as expected …
The building itself is really old, but I had no interests in it much.
Unless you are a Christian or someone interested in that kind of history, then go for it, otherwise it'll be a waste of energy for you

Very old ruins in fairly bad conditions, full of Chinese tourists and resellers of plastic goodies.
The gardens around are filthy with skinny cats awaiting some food and the grass full plastic bottles and various rubbish.
Not much to be enjoyed I am afraid.
