Very beautiful church in the heart of Valletta

The beautiful Altars ...Paintings and sculptures Like most of the churches in Malta St Paul's church is very well kept and I'm sure it is worth a visit

We went and saw this church during the white night festival,it was terrific we were lucky enough for the Church to display the stations of the cross statues they were very intricate and beautiful.Went back a few days later but the statues were gone as they were only put out for the festival.

It is an incredibly rich church all covered in marble. The statue of St. Paul is the centre piece of this magnificent monument. The statue is a masterpiece.

This is where you can see the famous picture of the shipwreck on Malta and St. Paul leaving Malta to go to Rome. They were doing extensive restoration on the ceiling but there is so much more to see. Excellent example of Baroque architecture.

The art and architecture were quite beautiful and moving but the real reason I liked this church is while in it, for me personally, I felt the presence God and the Holy Spirit.

Out of the way but well worth the trip to see the relics and the art. Had real atmosphere because dimly lit.

Church was empty but beautiful. See St. Paul's relics...a wrist bone and the marble pillar upon which he was beheaded. Absolutely beautiful church. I felt lucky to be there and even my teens were enthralled.

This church looks nothing from the outside, tucked away down a side street. It's well worth a visit as the interior is huge and stunningly beautiful. Entrance is free.
