This was one of the first places I visited in Mdina. I actually stumbled across it, not knowing what it was. Very highly decorated inside, lots of intricate detail. You are also allowed to take photos which I was pleased about.

Beautiful old church which is used for weddings and daily worship. Really worth a visit. Ladies need to visit with covered shoulders to show respect.

The floors alone are amazing - just too bad the floor... More

We felt very privileged that we were able to attend a concert in this wonderful building. The architecture is amazing and the floors, under which many former bishops etc are buried are really beautiful.. We would have like to spend a lot more time here.

Unfortunately there was a funeral, so we could not see it fully. We admired it from back seats at the cathedral
