Less posh than the St Johns co cathedral but surely more romantic and also very beautiful. Especially the roof with many beautiful domes. Also the stations of the cross are special. Do not forget the statues of St Paul and archangel Michael. A must see...More

This is a beautiful gem of a church. There’s a board outside inviting you in that came across as a little cheesy and offputting, but I’m glad we overcame our cynicism and went in. It’s under restoration in part but my oh my it is...More

To sure what’s special about this place. It’s one of the stop on my walking tour but I did not really go in. Not very impressive outside.

Accessed through a very unpretentious dorway from the street, the church is undergoing some much-neede restoration, particularly of its painted ceiling. It's a very peaceful place away from Valetta's bustling streets.

We only popped in here because we'd just had a bite at the cafe next door, through a tiny door, found a really impressive church, with an interesting relic in a chunk of the column that John was allegedly beheaded on.

You have to go to the side door and Santa Lucia Street. It is undergoing some renovation which is a bit of a problem but it's still worth the visit. Actually the renovation should be complete by now so I'm enjoy.
