Temporary home to a saint

What we say: 3.5 stars

The church itself, built in 1521 was visited on a number of occasions by the Jesuit missionary St Francis Xavier and following his death in 1552 his body was buried here for a period before being shifted to Goa in India. The statue of the saint – who is credited for spreading Catholicism to Asia – was added in 1952.

Today St Paul's isn't much too look at, but it's worth the hike up Bukit St. Paul (St. Paul's Hill) for the panoramic view of town.

Free admission.
