Large complex of catacombs and WEII shelter with St Paul’s grotto.

Grotto itself is behind closed metal doors - you can see space but can’t walk into.

Catacombs really scare for me as I was at here the only person at the time … claustrophobic but definitely worth to see it.

WWII shelter - great experience to see where population were hiding … such a bravery and dedication of people of Malta during the war.

I would recommend as in ticket price you will see all those attractions plus you can go to museum.

Best attraction in Rabat. Impressive and very original. Advised a visit, just in summer better in late afternoon for avoiding heat.

First of all, this isn't the main catacombs attraction in the area (we thought it was when we arrived). Really interesting shrine and some interesting catacombs too- all connected so you didn't have to walk up and down all the time. Good for 60-90 minutes event

A special and holy place in the center of a bustling area not to be missed. We found it quiet but an incredible experience to be in the footsteps of Saint Paul.

One of the earliest places of worship on Malta was Saint Paul's Grotto. St. Paul is believed to have stayed here in 60 AD after the ship he was on wrecked.

Nicely laid out underground grotto to St Paul. Good description of it’s meaning to the people of Malta and the celebrities who have visited. As described on internet.

We were a group of travellers from Canada, and explored this underground testimony to St Paul while visiting Rabat. Very atmospheric, and very interesting to read about the coming of St Paul to Malta. St Paul and St Joseph are the two patron saints of Rabat, and there are several parades to celebrate both men. Apparently there is a strong rivalry between both supporters!

Great place to see. We combined this with seeing the WW2 Underground bomb shelters. We would definitely recommend both of these visits whilst in Rabat.

Really cool underground war tunnels and burial chambers in ancient times. This is really worth a look. It’s huge. We almost got lost going down there. The museum is good too. Value for money in my opinion.

This was an essential part of the trip for me as I am keen to retrace st Paul's steps! Was a very interesting visit and information boards were provided to make clear the relevance of the cave and the stories around the life of St Paul.

The church was not open to the public due to restoration work however tickets were available at the Wigancourt Museum. This included access to the WW2 caves/ Catacombs and a gallery of fine art on the 1st Floor.
