St. Paul's Cathedral, Mdina, Malta is worth a visit as an attraction and also as it is a stunning place of worship in the Catholic Religion. It dates back to the 12th century. It has a co-cathedral in Valletta, St. John's.

The Cathedral is in the main square of Mdina and inside there is a marble floor with its tombstone and important paintings.

I find it not fair to charge an entrance to the church.. we decided not to go inside this time. From outside building is ok.

Was very nice but slightly underwhelming. Probably because of how nice it is outside. Be sure to used the side entrance as it can be a little difficult to find on first view

It's open at six for mass which is fine if you wish to go there for that reason but if you are sightseeing then you will (should) hang about until it is over.
