According to another one of our extensive research (2mins on Wikipedia), it is one of the oldest surviving European structure in Asia. Once a fortress built by the Portuguese, the gate is the only remaining structure now.

Around the A Famosa aka Porta De Santiago

This video shows the A Famosa up close and if you listen closely, you can also hear a tune resembling “My Heart Will Go On”.

No…you are not hearing things. It’s simply because there’s a violin player playing within the gates.

At the end of this video, you can also see a flight of red stairs that leads up the hill. This will bring you to St. Paul’s Church.
