Visit Historic Melaka - Ser. 256

A Famosa (Porta De Santiago)

The Melaka Hallmark and perhaps the most recognizable historic heritage. Built by thr Portuguese to defend themselves after capturing Melaka in 1511. It sustained severe structural damage during the Dutch invasion and demolition by thed British. Sections of the wall and main gate it what remains today of the once formidable fort.
