FULL ITINERARY

Our first stop is the St. Peter's church, the oldest operational Catholic Church in Malaysia - The Portuguese occupation of Malacca ended when Malacca felt into the Dutch in 1641. This was followed by period of prosecutions of the Catholics in Malacca by the Dutch. Churches were destroyed and Catholics were not permitted to have their own cemeteries or even pray in their homes. Priests were also forbidden to administer their flocks. The war of the Spanish Succession resulted in an alliance formed between the Portuguese and the Dutch in 1703. This resulted the Dutch adopted a softer stance towards the Portuguese Catholics. After years of prosecutions, a piece of land was donated by a Dutch convert and the St. Peter's Church was built in 1710. 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.

Visit the Dutch Square - It is a terracotta-red colonial Dutch building, built between 1660 and 1700, with louvered windows and chunky doors with wrought iron hinges.

Christ Church was built in 1753 to celebrate a century of Dutch occupation. The interior of the cathedral has 200 year-old handmade pews, decorative fanlights and plaques that honor Dutch soldiers and locals.

Victoria Fountain was erected in 1904 to commemorate Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee. One of the oldest surviving parts of Malacca, Dutch Square’s most prominent building is the Stadthuys.
