if youve seen one lovely cathedral youve seen 5,000 but this one has truly superb acoustics so if ever you are there on a sunday go not just for the service but to hear the lovely sound of the organ.

The cathedral looks stunning in the sunshine and lit up at night. Inside the floor is covered with the tomb stones of nobility. Considering mostly the nobility lived in Mdina you can imagine it's a real privilege to be buried here. Worth a visit

I visited the cathedral in the summer. It was cool and inviting and the place was well-maintained. I think the treasury next door was the more interesting part, but the cathedral itself had a really good aura

This Cathedral, also known as St Paul's, is the Metropolitan Cathedral of Malta (i.e. the mother church of all other churches within the Maltese archdiocese) and faces the immense but rather plain St Paul's Square. The Cathedral, as one would expect, is absolutely monumental, with elaborate and ornate frescoes, a richly carved wood Choir, 8 sublime side Chapels groaning under... More

Great little Christian Church in a little city with little streets and marvelous architecture. Get your photo camera and enjoy.

It is a nice Cathedral but not amazing. I like it more the outside than the inside. If you have time pop inside but if you have to choose one building to visit I will not choose the Cathedral.

The whole city is just absolutely stunning and this is a focal point. Lovely square in front of the cathedral as well.

Although I did not visit inside this church, the outside architecture is most interesting. Especially the two clocks.

The cathedral is set in a lovely square surrounded by harmonious buildings. The building itself isn't as ornate as some of the other churches nearby but the interior is outstanding. Not in the same league as St John's in Valletta it is nonetheless worth a visit. The tiled floor is a work of art and the dome it stunning.

Thank awk2406
