Built by the Dutch when they took charge of Malacca from the Portuguese, this is one of most defining structures of Malacca. Brick-red construction with a huge white cross at the top makes it easily recognizable. It was constructed in 1753 to celebrate a century of Dutch occupation. The interior of the cathedral displays 200 year old handmade pews, decorative fanlights, plagues honouring Dutch soldiers.
The weathercock and bell was added by the British who also transformed the protestant church into an Anglican one.
