How about the Spanish fortress or whats left of it. ;)

Actually all the colonial powers were there. The Dutch, the Portuguese, the Spanish or the British. But who was there first that built the fortress?

Your right, my bad :mad2:
I'm getting my history mixed up.

Afonso de Albuquerque (Portuguese) ordered the building of a fortress that was finished in November 1511.

On 14 January, 1641 the Dutch took possession of the fortress of Malacca.

A refresh of history. The Portuguese came in 1509 but were defeated. Then came again at 1511 and won the records of "Conquering the greatest trading city in asia with <1000 soldiers" ... If i remember correctly. :D
