Welcome to Malacca, the historic city of Melaka (in Malay) is divided into the new and old sections. The older part of the city is fairly compact and has many historical and cultural attractions tucked into the nooks and crannies of its narrow streets. Much of the remnants of Melaka's glorious past lie within the Town Square and waterfront area near the river. Just above the Town Square is St. Paul's Hill (Bukit St. Paul) which is the site of the original Portuguese fort of A'Famosa and St. Paul's Church.
