If you start your city tour by veering left from the Greek gate to Mdina, this little chapel will be immediately on your right. Nice architecture; if the iron gate is open, can also have a quick look inside.

This small chapel was built in 1417. We couldn't go inside, because it was closed, but we could have a look at it from the doorway. It's nice but nothing special. St. Agatha is one of Malta's patron saint.

Smaller than some of the others but still so gorgeous. I love old churches and this one has all the beautiful details that make me speechless and humbled.

Although I could not actually enter this small chapel, the interior is visible through a lattice screen in the doorway. Restoration work is on-going but it is very beautiful. Very worthwhile to see this chapel.

There is no entry permitted to this very small chapel, but there is a latticed doorway, which is locked, but does permit you to look inside and take a photo if you put the lens through one of the holes. The original chapel was damaged...More

I enjoyed looking into this church from the doorway, that's as far as I could go because the inner gate was locked. Small and cozy interior.

A small church with catacombs that you can view for a small donation. Bodies removed centuries ago and were moved to nearby cemetry and reburied. Really lovely local lady was at the door to welcome you.

Fascinating these catacombs are hewn out of the rock to become burial chambers, there are areas where they ate a meal to honour the dead and they date from the medieval period. Not really disabled friendly though.

By all means visit the church but, underneath, 26 years ago I discovered a small underground catacomb, I was looking for St. Pauls but came across Santa Agatha. It has now been extensively excavated and a tour can be taken to see the extent of...More

The church is very small more just a chapel and you will pass it as you walk through the Mdina. We could only view it through the closed iron gate but the few minutes to view were memorable. I wish I could have gone in.
