A Famosa, which means “The Famous” in Portuguese, is located in Melaka. The fortress, built in 1511, is one of the oldest surviving remains of European architecture in the Far East and South-East Asia.

But, it was reconstructed and altered by the Dutch into Porta de Santiago gate in 1670. This is a small “gatehouse” and it is the only part of the fortress that still remains today.
