Hotels near A Famosa

Oct 04, 2018

The A Famosa is named after the Portuguese word 'famosa' which literally translates to famous in English. Built in 1511 after a Portuguese fleet led by Alfonso de Albuquerque attacked and defeated the armies of Malacca Sultanate. The fortress was built as a sign of consolidating the city of Malacca which was believed to be an important connecting port between Portugal and the Spice Route in China for trading activities.


However in 1641, the fortress was taken over by the Dutch when they chased away the Portuguese from the city of Malacca. Finally in the 18th centuries, it was handed over to the Britain army in fears of surrendering to the Napoleon's territorial expanding France and it was also around the same time when the British was cautious of maintaining fortification thus decided to destroy the fortress. Its' destruction left only the 'Porta de Santiago', a small gate house, standing.


What makes it such a historical symbol does not just lie at the fact it was built in the 15th centuries but also the architectural technology of that time which allows it to stand strong till today without much preservation. Apart from A Famosa, there are also a number of monument around the area which are mostly built around the same time as the last standing gatehouse of A Famosa.
