Although we had wanted to see this place we found it by accident in a side street. Worth a visit and no cost involved just a donation. The inside is just beautiful & hard to grasp it is in a side street with buildings either side Well worth looking out for

In our opinion, much superior to the Co-Cathedral. A gem of a church in most typical Maltese style. Try to visit during the Feast of the Shipwreck of St Paul, February 10, the first major festa of the year.

This was such a surprise after the throngs at the Catheral, peace and tranquility. A truly beautiful church.

It's worth a visit but opening times are limited, so check first, I eventually went to a Sunday service at 11am, it is very quaint and the church was packed, the service is a mixture of Malti and English, . Most of the hymns were English.

A beautiful old church set in a side street in Valletta. Exquisitely decorated. Worth comparing with the nearby Co-Cathedral of St John.

Alex is such a lovely man and was so accomodating to us and for allowing us to get married there. The church looked amazing on the day and... More

This is one of Malta's most significant churches. It typifies magnificent baroque art, supported by the locale. The church was built and beautified by the merchants and inhabitants of Valletta. This is a jewel beyond belief. It is a church, not a museum, but the works of art are museum grade. This means, spend a lot of time there, ask... More

Interesting reminder of the island's connection with St Paul. Ornate and somewhat overdone (especially in the area of alleged saintly relics).
