We paid a brief visit here on a tour of Melaka. It is dedicated to St Peter and the door handles are huge keys! There was a gentleman outside whom escorted us in and gave us a brief history of the church

Nice walk over the hill. St. Peter's Church is situated on top of the hill. Good to see historic church and offers nice view of Melaka city.
