Very pretty view

Lots of steps to walk up but the view from the top is worth it. Some interesting traders on the way up and also at the top.

In a city often stifling in hot and muggy weather, St. Paul's Church on the hill provides a nice break with its fresh breeze and shade. Worth the climb to see where the Malacca Strait empties into the sea.

Parking is not on site, but at the bottom of the hill is where the journey starts. Again similar history to lots of attractions in Melaka, with occupancy by the Portuguese, Dutch and British.

The St Paul's church in Melaka is worth a visit by overseas visitors. It is located on the summit of a hill behind the Portuguese fort.

The visit to St Pauls hill was very worthwhile. The 16th Century Church is well worth seeing. It's has been nicely preserved and presented. Definitely worth seeing for those keen on history.

Kind of little hill in town of Melaka. Go thru stairs to get this place. There's a state of St. Paul on the top. Nice spot to take a picture. You can see fisherman village from here.

St Paul's hill & church gives you a good insight into the history of Melacca. The site has several information signs. It is free of charge and takes about 30 mins.

A few steps to climb, but worth a visit. Unfortunate, that street vendors are allowed to surround this historical area.
