This is a very historic and beautiful church dedicated to St. Paul. There are many side areas to explore. It is undergoing renovations and there is little in the way of explanation as we could find. It is still a nice experience. They were closing...More

Church dates from the 16th century and is named after the 60AD shipwreck of St Paul on Malta. We visited early one morning just before mass, using the side entrance and walking into what may have been the vestry then into the main part of...More

Love this church, it is absolutely beautiful. The big draw in town is the larger Cathederal (also magnificent) but this place is far less crowded and way more atmospheric. It's undergoing a big restoration project so you can see people working in there. It's fascinating...More

Never imagined this church would be so beautiful. After St John's, probably the most beautiful church in the city. Ornate decorations but small enough to keep the atmosphere of a spiritual place.

I don't normally go for such ornate churches but found it interesting and a place to sit and just be for a little while. Interesting to see how restoration work is being carried out. No entry fee which is always nice to see in a...More
