Like every other church I visited in Malta, this one is big, even though the town is small. There is an entrance ticket, which also covers the nearby museum. Take a few moments inside the church to appreciate the amazing artisanship on display everywhere you...More

A joint entrance fee of 5 euros to visit the Cathedral and the museum is good value.The awesome dome and marble panels are just some of the lovely things to behold.Nice to sit and reflect a while being surrounded by such beauty.

A great place in the centre of this city. When we were driving with Talinja buses, we always drove by this church. Then one day we step of on the bus station and went to see it. It looks great.

Well kept Cathedral. In my opinion rather church, but everything is smaller at Malta :). Decorated with very bright fabrics. Nice stonework

The focal point in the square, this amazing little cathedral has it all, beautiful chapels, artwork, organs and a dome with many gilded frames to show off the highlights. This is free to enter and is worth admiring whilst in Mdina.

We've been here and it was a cool experience to see the inside of the St. Paul Cathedral. The ticket is not so expensive cause you have two access: in the museum and the cathedral.

Medieval cathedral in the center of Mdina. Inside is quite rich. In order to enter you need a ticket from the opposite building - the Museum of the Cathedral.

This Church is beautiful outside and inside also is worth to pay the little fee entrance. Probably we will visit again this Church
