Medan Portugis information
Roughly 3km east of the city centre on the coast is the Medan Portugis. The small kampung centred on the square is the heart of Melaka's Eurasian community, descended from marriages between the colonial Portuguese and Malays 400 years ago, many of whom speak the creole language of Kristang (also called Papiah Kristang, Cristão or Cristan - derived from the word Christian). (For further information on the Kristang language, go to www.joanmarbeck.net .)
