Add a Point to the Map

One of the city’s most impressive churches, St Francis Xavier’s was built in 1856 to serve Melaka’s growing Catholic community. 

The church was named after a 16th century priest who was known as “the Apostle of the East” for spreading his religion across Asia.  The church was built in a gothic style and its white spires reach high above the historic district’s otherwise low skyline.

St Francis Xavier’s remains a functioning church with regular mass services.
