St Francis Xavier's Church was built between 1849 and 1856 on the former site of a Dominican Portuguese church called Convent Of Our Lady Of The Rosary by a French priest, Father Farvé. The twin-spired Gothic church was named after the famous Catholic missionary who visited Malacca on several occasions from 1545 to 1552, on his way to the Far East. The design of the church was based on the Cathedral of St Peter in Montpellier, France.
