We visited while on a day trip to Valetta. Stunningly beautiful Cathedral, very useful handset included in the entry price. The interior is truly incredible. However, what put everything else into the shade was the Carrivagio painting of "The beheading of St John the Baptist"...More

This was amazing. It is so ornate and has so much interesting history about the Knights of Malta. We couldn't believe how beautiful it was.

An incredibly decorative building,full of marble, gold leaf and glorious art with two Caravaggio masterpieces taking centre stage. A very popular destination, but well worth a visit.
