When travelling our of tourist season, this church is only open for mass. We had a nice wander round the outside of the building but didn't want to impose on any worshippers and go in during mass.

This church, as tiny as it is, is beautifully decorated both on the outside and the inside so once you finished visiting St.Paul's Grotto, do climb up the stairs for a quick tour!It is definitely worth it.

Another majestic church in Malta. Full of details and magnificent decoration. If there's a service you can't go inside and take photos. Even not being a believer you must respect all the religions or habits.

We passed by this very lovely church without having time to explore its interior, but exterior is quite nice. Not to be missed with Cathedral of St Paul which is in Mdina, as I see many people here got confused.

Well worth a visit to this walled city, the church and museum were the icing on the cake. We went by public transport which was an experience itself, the fare only Euro 1.50 each. It only cost Euro 5 each to go into the church...More

On it's own the church is only a 3 star, but it is 5 star when combined with St Paul's Grotto (where St Paul apparently stayed for 3 months), Catacombs (eerie and where more than 1000 people were buried), museum of art and ww2 shelters...More

The amount of gold embellishment in this cathedral was amazing. really awesome. But I always wonder at what expense of the people. As an Anglican/Lutheran I find it over the top.
