Cool and Quiet. Mass Service.

Not always open when you happen to be there but when it is, make sure you spend some time inside. Beautiful.

Very grand, ornate, numerous paintings, windows, painted ceilings to see. Women have to cover their knees and shoulders but scarves are provided for the unprepared

what an amazing piece of history and architecture. Malta is full of interesting buildings but this is one that needs to be visited.

While in Malta, this walled city is worth the trip. Its like half an hour bus ride from Valletta. I would suggest spending half a day here. I love places where you feel like you are transported in another time. This is a well maintained and preserved piece of history. Too bad a lot of stores were closed due to... More

Located right in the middle of Mdina old town, the church is hard not to be found. It is the cathedral of Malta, sharing its functions with St. John's Co-Cathedral in Valletta. It was built with Romanesque foundations, but after an earthquake, it was rebuilt in ornate Baroque style in the 18th century.

The Catherdral is quite lovely and well worth a visit. The price of admission includes entrance to the museum and to Palazzo pieti, good value for money. Ladies, don't forget to cover your shoulders, there are no scarves on loan here.

This cathedral is beautiful inside and out. From the cannons at the entrance which have been restored to the beautifully kept interior this place is beautiful. The stain glass windows that shimmer in the Maltese sun and the beautiful marble and paintings inside make it a great place to spend the warmest part of the day. Shoulders and knees need... More
