A short hike up hill could be challenging for some. But when you reach the top, there is quiet peacefulness seeing the ruins of an old church. Nice view of Melaka at night.
Nice, short flight of stairs in the middle of town to get an unblocked view of the city. It is surrounded by other historical landmarks. As far as ruins go, it's quite well maintained. During the holidays and weekends, there are quite a lot of visitors so it may be hard to get a nice pic without some photo bombers. A good place to perch and watch the hustle and bustle of the townspeople. There's buskers there for you to enjoy too.
