Description
Every visitor to Melaka explores Chinatown and sees the Malay settlement of Kampung Morten from the river cruise, but the Portuguese Village on the outskirts of the city receives few visitors. Make the trip out to learn more about the descendants of Melaka’s first colonisers, or at least to enjoy a delicious seafood dinner by the coast.Melaka was a colony of Portugal from 1511 till 1641. Although their rule ended when the Dutch arrived, marriages between Portuguese and local people resulted in the creation of a unique “Eurasian” culture that has survived the centuries.

However, the Portuguese Village was only created in the 1930s when the British colonial government granted 28 acres of seaside land to the Portuguese descendants. Many speak a dialect called Kristang and are devoutly Catholic – there is an active convent and a shrine to San Pedro (St Peter), the patron saint of fishermen.
