This is the view at dusk from the hill in the centre of Melaka where the ruin of St Paul's Church stands. Built in 1521 by a Portuguese captain and originally called the Church of Our Lady of Annunciation, it was renamed when the Dutch captured Melaka in 1641. It was further damaged when the British invaded and started destroying fortifications including A Famosa, nearby.

In the distance you can see the sea, which is now much further away than it used to be due to land reclamation work in the 20th century.
