St. Peter’s Church was built by the Portuguese descendants after religious freedom was proclaimed by the Dutch over Malacca in 1702. One of its artifacts is the 1608 bell found inside the Church’s Tower. Visitors can go here through a cab, about RM15. St Peter’s Church is at 166 Jalan Bendahara and is probably the oldest “working” Catholic church in Malacca. You can see that it has the year “1710” on it and that will help you distinguish it from the other churches. It is also not a “ruin”. The statues, Our Lady of Fatima and Our Lady of Lourdes, deserve special mention. Non-Catholics and Catholics alike show their devotion or seek to calm their spirits merely being there. The crucified Christ on a bier is a must to see. This bier is carried in procession during Good Friday worship. The Belfry, the Bell and the stained glass panels everything is remarkable.
