This unassuming church was recommended as part of our self-guided walking tour of Valletta. It would be so easy to either walk on past or miss it completely, but the rather dark entrance belies the ornate interior. As with most churches, you are expected to...More

We came across this church by mistake. It is a hidden gem. You can see St's Pauls hand and part of the pillar which was used to cut his head off.
