Dedicated to Malta's patron saint, again another stunning sight and a must see if you are on short break. So beautiful inside like all of Malta's church's. Again accessibly can be a problem with steps to negotiate but worth a visit.

This is a lot smaller than the main cathedral but still worth looking at. It had lots of decorative silverware and statues also a lot quieter and easier to walk around. Well worth seeing and keep your eye out for the entrance as it is...More

This church has a rather plane exterior but its interior is very pretty. It is best known for having a reported relic from St Paul's ship.

You have to go to the side door and Santa Lucia Street. It is undergoing some renovation which is a bit of a problem but it's still worth the visit. Actually the renovation should be complete by now so I'm enjoy.
