Beautiful cathedral. Much quieter than the Co-cathedral in Valletta. And the atmosphere is more peaceful. Recommended when visiting Mdina.

The first time went to Mdina I did not even notice the Cathedral, so this time I went looking for it and was so pleased to find it. You start with the museum, which has some wonderful silver, old coins etc. The silver work is incredibly intricate, and I spent far more time in the museum than I intended to... More

Entrance normally costs but you can go in for free if you go for Mass, which is celebrated daily, you can always check the times at quddies.com.mt. It's a beautiful Church and rightly dedicated to St. Paul the Apostle who shipwrecked on Malta.
