Malta is strictly connected with St Paul's life. He staid for several years on the island after a shipwreck. This church is built in his memory.

St Paul's is another experience of the beautiful architecture in Malta. It is well worth a visit when you're in the Mdina/Rabat area.

It was lovely to visit the small catacomb/grotto area where St Paul is said to have stayed on the island for 3 months. The church was having a service when we visited so we did not go in but we were able to cross the...More

There was a festive atmosphere in Rabat the day we went there. The city was celebrating the feast day of St Joesph. There were fireworks and parades. The inside of the church was decorated even more than usual. One the one hand it is wonderful...More

This is a charming attractive church with history spanning back to 1336, with the new church on the site built at a later date. Finding the open times can be challenging. We found the entrance on the left side of the cathedral and it was...More

We found ourselves in St. Paul's Church in Rabat because we were visiting St. Paul's Grotto. (See separate review.) The church is pleasant enough but doesn't really standout among the multitude of churches and cathedrals across Malta.

When travelling our of tourist season, this church is only open for mass. We had a nice wander round the outside of the building but didn't want to impose on any worshippers and go in during mass.

This church, as tiny as it is, is beautifully decorated both on the outside and the inside so once you finished visiting St.Paul's Grotto, do climb up the stairs for a quick tour!It is definitely worth it.

Another majestic church in Malta. Full of details and magnificent decoration. If there's a service you can't go inside and take photos. Even not being a believer you must respect all the religions or habits.
