You'll appreciate this at night when it comes to view only. But days are good too especially if you want to pray and all.

This is situated in the middle of a very busy and crowded shopping district. Entry is free. The noise from outside is not completely kept out, but still the hall offered considerable shelter from the maddening crowd out there. Silence was generally observed. Photography is not prohibited, which means there are the usual selfies and wefies throughout. A couple of... More

Church itself was built in baroque style in 1587. It currently houses antique religious figures, some of which are dismembered. Only up to 10 people are allowed to be on the top floor (bell tower) at the same time.

A beautiful historical church. It is located right at sSenado Square which is the main tourist area. Hence, I would say you will not have missed it before or after you visited Ruins of St Paul. Tourists are allowed to enter the church.

I think this church is really Portuguese as it resembles structures that can be seen in Malacca as well, a former Portugal colony. But besides taking pictures there's nothing much to do.
