St Paul’s Church was built by a Portuguese Captain, the chapel was turned by the Dutch into a burial ground for their noble dead and renamed it `St. Paul’s Church` from the Portuguese’s `Our Lady Of The Hill.` St. Francis Xavier was briefly enshrined in the open grave in 1553 before being shipped to Goa, India.
