St. Paul’s Church is located at Penang Hill at the mouth of the Malacca River (also known as Xishan, where the King of Manchuria, Baili Misula, once wrote the golden dragon on the mountain as a stone monument, and later renamed it as St. Paul’s Hill). It was built in 1521, Built by the Portuguese. The famous missionary St. Francis is buried here, and there is a statue of St. Francis priest in front of the church. After the Dutch occupied Malacca in 1670, they used the church as a castle. Today, many bullet holes are still visible on the outer wall. In 1753, the Dutch built another church, and St. Paul’s Church was used as a cemetery for the Dutch nobles, and some tombstones inscribed in Latin and Portuguese still remain. There is a crypt in the church, which was the temporary cemetery of Saint Francis in 1553.
