{melaka} up to st. paul’s hill

October 2, 2016

St. Paul’s Church (well, parts of St. Paul’s Church) stands on the top of St. Paul’s Hill located in the center of Melaka. This Portuguese church was built in 1521, which makes it the oldest church building in Malaysia, in fact all of Southeast Asia. It was not a long, but pretty steep climb up to the top of St. Paul’s Hill, but I’m glad I pushed through (with my pack on no less) because not only did I get to see some beautiful church ruins, the height of the hill offered some nice views of the city below. I’m just amazed that visitors are still allowed to walk through and touch all the ruins. What an experience!
