Where else can you find “Lisbon” in Malaysia than in Melaka? Yes, Portuguese Square, known as 'Mini Lisbon' is a must-visit place in Melaka. This small kampung (village), is the heart of Melaka's Eurasian community, descended from marriages that took place between colonial Portuguese and Malays some 400 years ago.
The square is central to Portuguese culture and is the only one of its kind in Malaysia. There are occasional performances of Portuguese dances and music. Renowned for its constant hosting of unique and interesting stalls, restaurants and entertainment spots, the square is a popular destination. The square is busiest on weekends when the Portuguese communities put on traditional performances.
