Church of St. Francis Xavier – Melaka
The Church of St. Francis Xavier (Malay: Gereja St. Francis Xavier) is a church in Malacca City. The church was built in 1849 on an old Portuguese church site by a French priest, Father Farvé. The finishing touches of the building were completed in 1856 by Father Allard, with the present-day presbytery built in 1874. The church is a twin-spired neo-gothic structure. It is believed that the church was modelled after the Cathedral of St. Peter in Montpellier, Southern France, which closely followed the older church’s original construction, except for a portico which was added on in 1963.
