This cathedral is the nicest I have ever seen. I dare say that this cathedral is even more breath taking than the one in valletta. I would highly recommend a visit to the adjacent museum which houses some stunning silver artefacts

Beautiful cathedral well worth visiting to in Malta and good + regular bus service from Malta (and not too crowded). There's a small entrance fee to pay but is worth it - so people in the future can visit it.

It's an extraordinary gem in Mdina. You can't visit Mdina and miss out at this cathedral. It's a must for all visitors-local and foreigners. The marble floors are unique and tell a story. The whole place is a history itself and leaves you thinking of the past.

You would like all about this. One drawback is that there is too much to see in one go.Besides visiting the cathedral itself there is a museum attached to it where famous and unique works of srt sre exhibited.

Imposing external look complete with 2 canons in front of the entrance. Is situated in the largest piazza of Mdina (The Silent City. The inside is enriched by impressive ornaments and decorations typical of most Maltese churches. If you have enough time the adjacent Cathedral Museum has a lot on show as well.

At a small fee you can see this stunning cathedral and also visit the Cathedral Museum which is also not to be missed. It is very beautiful with stunning paintings and artwork. The history is vast and don't miss the floor as this is magnificent!

The church is interesting and it is located in an attractive part of Malta: Mdina which was the ancient capital of Malta. You can reach it easily by bus.

As the main part of an excellent day in Mdina, this cathedral didn't disappoint. Wonderfully decorated inside you simply have to visit to experience it. It is undergoing some maintenance during our visit (Nov2014) so some of the splendour was covered but this didn't ruin the visit for us.
