A'Famosa (Porta de Santiago)

Mostly in ruins

Photo of A'Famosa (Porta de Santiago), , Melaka

What we say: 3 stars

All that survives is the gate house and a few antique cannons have been placed in front for touristy photo-ops.

Before it was destroyed, the fortress passed from the Portuguese to the Dutch, and you can still make out the bas-relief logo of the Dutch East India Company.

Free admission.
