This beautiful Cathedral is the 'icing on the cake' of wonderful Mdina. While less attractive than some churches and cathedrals [including St John;s Co-Cathedral in Valletta], Mdina's Cathedral is still worth the visit and some time to appreciate its own beauty.

Even though you have to pay a fee to get the Mdina Cathedral is a must see. The paintings and artefacts are beautiful. And with your ticket you can also visit the Cathedral Museum which I found interesting as well.

Worth a visit as with all the churches in Malta. The paintings and artefacts must be priceless. Peace and solitude for those that want quiet time and prayer.

Pretty but St. John's in Valletta was better. It wasn't as impressive as the other churches to be honest but it adds some character to the city.

The Mdina Church is the most remarcable building in the city on the outside, and also on the inside, just it's a shame to pay a fee to visit it (there is a combo ticket together with the Cathedral Museum nearby).

We attended midnight mass on Christmas Eve and it was a wonderful theatrical and musical experience. Prof. Bulagiar and his choir and the exceptional Graziella Briffa were simply marvellous. Vist and enjoy the interior.

I know. It is costly to keep a church nice, but keeping churches closed to the public is a no-go. I did not pay € to go in.

This cathedral is a reminder of Malta's religious past! Although dimly lit it is plain that there is a great deal of wealth behind this magnificent building. Still used today it is very well kept but it is the sense of history that brings one to recommend a visit

Beauty and history under one roof. Well worth a visit when in Mdina. The cathedral is particularly spectacular when lit up at night. The silence is just eerie!

I was there on july, in morning, and was closed for visitors until 10 AM. After I visit Mdina, I didn't really want to visit Cathedral, but I changed my mind and I didn't regret it. I loved the religious painting and the arhitecture of the cathedral.
