The façade looked gorgeous in the bright sunshine with the stonework shown to best effect. It was an apt intro to the marvellously ornate Baroque interior. Most of the space is resplendent in paintings, gilt and other exquisite ornamentation.

This extends to the awe-inspiring floor that comprises marble tomb slabs with pained coats of arms and though provoking images.

Just mother church, overly decorated, filled with artifacts of the past. Nothing special inside, except emptiness.

Very interesting and right in the heart of the old City. We liked the interior and found the attached museum interesting too.

Hello this is another church - Just another church. Much like the other churches in Malta apart from the fact that most of the others are free (though a donation always raises a smile).

My advice? - Admire from the outside and invest in a cooling beverage instead.
