“Entrance fee covers Cathedral & nearby museum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2014

The interior of this is lovely! Most striking is the false dome, painted in trompe l'oeil making you think there's a dome on the church. Impressive. Yes, there's a fee to enter this church, but it also gives admission to a related museum and provides funding to maintain the building.

“Stunning”

The plain exterior does nothing to give away the inside. A truly beautiful cathedral. Well worth a visit.

“Just another Catherdral, pay to enter”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2014

There are a lot of Cathedrals in Malta and Gozo and they are all free. However after climbing a steep hill, I found out that you had to pay to enter this church. Not really worth it. It's just another Cathedral and you can visit another Cathedral in Malta for free, which is just as beautiful.

“Beautiful cathedral with interesting history”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2014

This Gozoan church is likely to take your breath away with its baroque elaborate beauty. It has the form of the Latin cross and is built entirely from the local limestone in 17th century. Due to lack of funds a dome was not added to the structure which is unusual for Maltese baroque. We witnessed here the elaborate special mass of ordination of new priests, the procession and other festive activities. If you are lucky you will visit during one of the special times and be able to observe the interior come alive. The 19th century statue of Santa Marija (The Assumption of Our Lady) is a local attraction.
