Great catacombs under the church. The cheery lady explained that they were tunnelled out by little people before the church was there. Very interesting.

We had considered visiting St Paul's Catacombs (which did seem to be good value) but decided that albeit far more well-known, we didn't really want to spend hours looking at the same things over and over. So we visited this lovely chapel and were delighted to give them a donation to view their much smaller catacombs. What we found was a delight. They were very well kept, nicely presented and really interesting. Because they were much smaller in size, we had the experience to ourselves - which we like - and the lovely lady in charge was really friendly and helpful.

St Paul’s was shut so, I visited this lovely little chapel next to the Square.
The lady custodian was so delightful and insisted I had a seat, as I have mobility issues. She was so knowledgeable about the chapel and catacombs, and told me much about life in Malta during the War. I’m so very glad I met her, and that she took so much time to explain things to me.
Don’t miss this tiny place! Worth the donation!

This lovely church and catacombs is well worth a visit. The lovely custodian explained everything so well and really brought it to life for us, she is clearly very proud of the place and understandably so. Look out for the chisel marks, imagine the suffering of the men working in such cramped conditions. The ‘table’ in the middle where they had a feast to celebrate after the burial and the small hollows for burial of children. - easy to imagine how it was used. Excellent.

If you want to have a look at catacombs without committing yourself to the St Paul's Complex, then this is the place!
Lovely little chapel to St Cataldus, with a delightful custodian who will chat to you about anything, and is very knowledgeable about the simple catacombs under her charge. She only asks for a donation, and if you enjoy these, then you can move on to the larger collections! Fascinating to see what our ancestors achieved.

This small catacomb complex is run by the sheer dedication of a very nice lady .she will be more then happy to chat with and share her deep interest in the devotion of St .Cataldus. For the price a small donation, which is the only source of income to maintain and further restore the small church, you can venture down to experience a small rock cut altar and catacomb still untouched and unobstructed allowing visitors to intimately experience the complex as was meant to be used. Well worth a visit.

Our excellent guide explained that full catacomb is much larger.

Happy and proud that St Cathaldus was Irish.

Strange to find an Irish Saint honoured in Malta who is buried in Italy. Small church with voluntary donation - should ask for at least 5euro. Fantastic lady who did guide is so enthusiastic.
