Beautiful biblical location and impressive church

The biblical city of Mdina is beautiful and the church in the centre is impressive too. A must visit on your trip to Malta!

This cathedral is dedicated to St Paul who founded the Maltese church after he was shipwrecked on Malta as in the St Johns church in Valletta there are many gravestones set in the floors but these are more commemorations rather than tombs Look out for the wealth of silver marble and bronze monuments Entrance fee includes the museum opposite which...

I am not religious but could not fail to be impressed with the Cathedral. The paintings inside are even to my untrained eye absolutely excellent as is the architectural detail so common to lots of other religious buildings in Malta.

The cathedral in Mdina is a beautiful church with a spectacular floor with commemorate plates everywhere. The entrance is a combined ticket with the cathedral museum (also good) and a Palazzo next to the Cathedral (cafe with nice view but uninteresting museum of craftmens Toole).

Interesting to wander around. A beautiful interior. Roof is stunning to look at. and depicts the life of St Paul. This Cathedral is built on the site of the original Cathedral which was destroyed in the 1693 earthquake.

An excellent cathedral; well maintained and kept a peaceful religious atmosphere. Also one could not miss the historic significance of the place.

We toured this church as part of a tour arranged by the cruise ship. It is certainly decorated but is not very memorable except that it is in the Old City of Mdina. We are seen hundreds of churches and this one does not rank in the top 50.
