Entrance is on the inclined Triq Santa Luċija, and has a lovely church seating area, with very ornate decoration all around the inside. Crypt was a bit disappointing, but good way to spend 15mins having a look around. Organ looked fantastic from below....unsure if could...More

No real signage to speak of and you can miss it when walking by if you don't look up. Then you will be taken by impressive spires and bell towers. It's just tucked away. Entrance to the church is from the St Lucia's Street. It's...More

Very disappointed that when we went to see this church it was closed. Wanted so much to see it as I had studied Paul's journeys when I was taking my A level exams.

Entrance to the church is from the St Lucia's Street. We went to the church at wednesday and it opened at 14:00 and it was free of charge. The church is a little hidden gem and is really beautiful.

Compared to other churches and cathedrals this one is nothing special. It is close to other Valletta attractions and is free to visit, so it is worth a few moments to stop by and take a look. Paul was shipwrecked here (on Malta) on his...More

The signage to the church is not huge and without a sign outside you could easily walk by without realising that the church was even there. If you did then you would miss a gem. Even the entrance doesnt give an impression of the size...More

Walking down St.Paul Street or Triq San Pawl while strolling the streets of Valletta we chanced upon this church sandwiched between residential and commercial establishments. The spires and bell tower looked so impressive as they loomed over us. The church has a beautiful altarpiece and...More

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.
