The ticket includes admission to the museum, the grotto itself, as well as the catacombs and WW2 air raid shelter. Excellent value and super interesting. Don't miss it if you have a couple of hours to spare in Rabat.

A beautiful place and experience, visiting where Apostle Paul stayed when ship-wrecked on Malta. Defintely worth a visit.

The grotto is part of the Wignacourt Museum and the museum ticket also includes the grotto, catacombs, WW2 shelters. The grotto itself is a very austere area, though there are more elaborate alters adjacent to it.

My husband & I visited St Paul’s Catacombs, St Paul’s Grotto & the Musuem. Exceptional Value at 5 Euro + 2 Euro for the Audio Guides. The Audio Guides are a must. It is quite special to see St Paul’s Grotto.

This area you can see the best of Malta and all in walking distance. One whole day you can spend here and you will not be disappointed. Peaceful and Serene and no traffic and lots of lovely cafes without being too commercialised.

As already say I don't know of any painting made by St Paul's of the Madonna. I only know of a painting by St Luke but that's in Roma. Maybe you can send a picture of it
