Amazing, built by the Dutch when they took possession of Malacca from the Portuguese, it's one of Malacca’s most defining structures. Situated along Jalan Gereja (also known as Church Street) it is an instantly recognizable brick-red building with a huge white cross at the top. Sitting opposite the Stadhuys, 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 honour Dutch soldiers and locals.
Located in Dutch Square; also known as the Red Square. It is in the heart of the touristy area so it's not hard to miss! This is an old Catholic church. Architecturally from the outside, you can see Western influence. It's one of the most photographed places on earth so if you're doing it for the gram, this is it! Entrance fee is free however there's limited information inside and the place is not in its best condition; would be nice to see it restored. It's just an okay place to visit.
