St Paul's Cathedral in Mdina is more than just a beautiful cathedral is also has a museum attached. Entrance costs 5 euro pp and includes entrance to see everything. There are some very interesting historical religious items on show. The Cathedral is ornate with many chapels and well worth a look.

Mdina's centrepiece is it's cathedral so it would be a shame not to visit. The ticket price of €5 also includes the museum.

Beautifully postioned - well worth visiting. Everything about Mdina is majestic. We loved walking around the walls in the area around the Cathedral. It is really great to see that the ancient sites and city walls are getting ready for Valetta - European City of Culture 2018.

Really cool, escape from the heat outside. Lots of dead bishops laid to rest in the floor! Fascinating. Ask the children to count them.

You used not to have to pay to go inside this cathedral and it is a shame that you do now - €5 seems very steep when you consider all the equally beautiful churches on the island you can visit for free. It's really impressive from the outside and I remember how nice it was inside, too.

Was really privileged to visit this delightful cathedral during a special feast when all the beautiful wall hangings were on display - amazing! Although I usually object to paying to visit a place of worship, this Cathedral is worth every cent! Also, do purchase the combo-ticket with joint entrance into the Cathedral Museum.

There are many similarities between this smaller cathedral in the old capital of Malta, Mdina - and the mighty, resplendent St. John's Co-Cathedral in Valletta. Both are Baroque churches, both are in the beige-brown sandstone so typical of Malta, both are "overstuffed" with figures, grave tablets, altars, paintings and the lot - only St. John's is more so.
