“Interesting look at restoration work”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

The church is undergoing restoration at the moment, so there is a fair amount of scaffolding up. While this detracts a bit from the view, it's still possible to get up close to things for a good look -- and it is a lovely church. One can also go upstairs to view the restoration work there, but be advised that access is via the old staircase which is circular and rather narrow but well lit. Proceed with caution.

When I went, the person manning the desk didn't charge me an entry fee, though there was a sign indicating that donations are welcome. There was also a sign noting that it was possible to go upstairs but nothing about a separate fee for that. Perhaps this is a change in policy, or maybe it was because there was no one giving a talk about the restoration work, but it was a bit confusing as this church is included in the Malta Pass program and the original reviewer indicates s/he paid a fee.

Regardless, this is a very nice church. It's small and right on the main square, so it doesn't take long to visit. Anyone interested in restoration and/or religious art should have a look. I'd love to see this again once the restoration is complete, though I suspect it will be some time before they're done.
