Battle of Cape Rachado 1606

Dutch VOC with help from Johor versus Portuguese (Malacca).
The lighthouse at the cape witnessed the fierce battle involving 31 ships with cannons and numerous hands aboard.
If the story narrated in the link below is true, I can imagine how precious the resources of this great land were during the days in history.
I wish to bring the family and pay a visit to the lighthouse in February during Ahad's Family Day insyaAllah.
