Having visited Mdina we crossed the road to Rabat Old Town. It is a quiet (in October anyway) unspoiled little town and we came across the church of St Paul by chance. It is fascinating, virtually a cave, and reputed to be the first Christian church on Malta, founded by St Paul after his shipwreck. I loved it, partly because the gentleman guiding us through the two rooms (cave and grotto) was clearly devoted to his task and was able to share his knowledge in a simple and clear way with no hype. A quiet request to make an optional donation concluded his short talk.
A lovely quiet sanctuary -and cool on a hot day.
