A Famosa (Malay: Kota A Famosa; "The Famous" in Portuguese) is a Portuguese fortress located in Malacca, Malaysia. It is among the oldest surviving European architectural remains in Asia. The Porta de Santiago, a small gate house, is the only remaining part of the fortress still standing.
The name is often mispronounced // Famosa, even among Malaysians, as though the Portuguese definite article a were the English letter A. A more authentic pronunciation would be // Famosa.
