St.John's Fort

Rebuilt by the Dutch in the 18th century, St. John's Fort was once a private Portuguese chapel dedicated to St. John the Baptist.

The fort has an interesting feature - cannons face inland as, during that time, attacks on Melaka came mainly from the hinterland instead of from the sea.

Another attraction for many is the view from the top of the hill where St. John's Fort stands, particularly for the fantastic tropical sunsets.
