It was built in 1710 after the Dutch restored freedom of worship to Melaka’s Roman Catholics. Its design is a striking blend of East and West.
The oldest item in the church is the bell, manufactured in Goa in 1608. It was salvaged from an earlier church burned by the Dutch during their 1641 occupation.
Take the extra time and go inside the church and find the beautiful stained glass windows.
