This church is undergoing restoration, but is truly beautiful, an oasis of calm in a busy city. Amazing statue of Archangel Michael overcoming Satan, plus many others.

It is free to enter, but please, please donate as this Church needs attention just as much as St. John. We have seen so many of the visitors who walked pass the donation boxes and ignored them. There will not be treasure such as this...More

A small doorway down a quite street in Valletta leads to one of the most interesting Churches Ive been to around the world . Worth a visit .

I don't know what I was expecting but this church is definitely more prosperous than I anticipated. It's a bit dark inside, perhaps because of the renovation, but this church has some beautiful paintings and furnishings.

There was a renovation going on. There is a simple entrance to a normal church. But you have to see this after the co-cathedral.

It's a small church and worth a peak, but that's about all. Nothing compared to the huge cathedral and some of the other splendid sites in Valletta.

You have to go to the side door and Santa Lucia Street. It is undergoing some renovation which is a bit of a problem but it's still worth the visit. Actually the renovation should be complete by now so I'm enjoy.
