Interesting church.

I visited just before Easter and saw the unusual floral decorations in preparation. Imagine huge white pom-poms. An ancient and venerable building.

Beautifull little church with its own story. Like a lot of churches and Cathedrals in malta very under stated on the outside.

Worth half an hour in such an excellent city because it forms part of it's essential naval and ocean history, which produced the character of the place.

Very easy to reach from St. John's Co-Cathedral. Just follow the signs on buildings on the left side of the square, next to Co-Cathedral. Good place for a prayer. Entry is free, but worth making a donation ...

One of the most beautiful churches I've ever seen, very different from the ones I've seen in other countries. Definitely a must see. It's free so remember to leave a donation.

An interesting visit in a beautiful church that is contiguous with other buildings and takes a little searching, but signs on Merchant st. Point to the location. BE sure to pick up a printed guide at the front desk , which can easily be past by. Printed for multiple languages

This church is accessed via a side street, normally the main doors are closed and visits not possible when there is a service taking place. This is a smaller version of St John's Co- Cathedral just around the corner but this one is free, it is just as ornate and worth a visit.

Found it without a problem. A very interesting church with most of the walls and floors in marble. There was some renovation work going on while we were there so could not see everything. It says that there is no photgraphy allowed, but what they really mean is flash photography.

Looks like a house from the outside which makes you go wow when inside , top ceilings and beauty that travels you back in time. Worth spending some more time and looking around every detail. Beautiful place but make you find out about the opening times so you won't be disappointed. It's free to go and is shut on a... More
