It was built by the descendants of Portuguese immigrants in 1710. St. Peter’s Church is famous for Friday worship and Easter worship. Every June, a SAN PEDRO event is held here to thank the patron saint who takes care of the fishermen. Catholics from all over Malaysia will come here to participate.
Such a beautiful and well-preserved 17th century Catholic Church right at the heart of Malacca.
very nice scenery on the hill top, overlooking the ocean, beautiful
This is one of Malacca's major churches and the oldest Roman Catholic church in the country. It dates back to the Dutch colonial era, which followed the occupation by the Portuguese. After years of persecution and churches destroyed by the Dutch, the Portuguese population were given a plot of land and thus this church came to be. It's a beautiful structure and a huge space outside of the old part of town. I didn't come here for a service but the doors were open for visitors.
St. Peter's Church is a Catholic church built on a piece of land given by the Dutch back in the early 1700s. At the time it was built, that area was considered outside of Malacca town but is now part of the city centre. The oldest item in the church is the bell that was manufactured in Goa and salvaged from an earlier Portuguese church that was burnt down by the Dutch.
We have attended the Sunday mass in this church and unfortunately we were quite disappointed. We were sitting close to the entrance and we couldn't hear anything what the priest was saying. The acoustic in St Peter's church is terrible. The building looks good from the outside though, so it is a pretty nice tourist attraction.
