Although slightly on the small side, St George's Basilica is beautifully ornate and the surrounding citadel gives you amazing views across the island. Not to be missed.

The church just happened to be open one evening for a festival and I took the opportunity of going in, and I was so glad that I did. The interior is elaborately and beautifully decorated in the High-Baroque style.

The front of the Basilica is impressive with a long sweep of steps, the inside is not as opulent as some of Malta's churches but it has history.

I wasn’t sure why the entry to the Cathedral and associated museum were not included in the entry to the Citadel as in truth they are not great in comparison to the co-Cathedrals at Valletta and Medina.

You should not go to Victoria and miss out on this beautiful church, it was very tranquil and soothing place to visit. The dome is so wonderful a truly magnificent peaceful place.

When you get off the Ferry take the Public Transport bus to the Capital Victoria. Its a very short distance and when you arrive there just ask Its only a short walk from the bus terminal. Enjoy.
