A Famosa [also known as Porta De Santiago, or at least the remaining gate] is a once mighty Portugese fortress located just a short distance away from St. Paul's Church. According to a certain website, it is said to be among the oldest surviving European architectural remains in Asia. At one point the fortress was fairly huge, with several watch towers and ammunition storage rooms. Built on a hill, it was almost completely demolished by the British except for the gate seen here.
