Santiago Gate - Surviving Gate of the A Famosa Portuguese Fortress

 

A Famosa (Malay: Kota A Famosa; "The Famous" in Portuguese) is a former Portuguese fortress located in Malacca, Malaysia. It is among the oldest surviving European architectural remains in Southeast Asia and the Far East (built in 1511). The Porta de Santiago, a small gate house, is the only part of the fortress which still remains today.
