Church of St Francis Xavier
Towers over Melaka
What we say:
The white spires of this Gothic-style church tower above Melaka's historic area.
The impressive building was completed in 1856, having taken nearly seven years to complete, and still functions as a Catholic church.
It is named in honour of St Francis Xavier, the 16th century missionary who brought Catholicism to the Far East and was a regular visitor to Melaka.
