“Small baroque church”

St. Ursula Church and Monastery
Reviewed 6 April 2018 via mobile

Usually closed, but if open worth a quick detour. Nothing out of the ordinary (spoilt for baroque churches in Valletta) but has a nice atmosphere.

Reviewed 8 December 2015

In a city measuring 900 m by 630 m, Valletta has over 25 churches. This one is small and part of the Jerosolimitan contemplative community of 15 nuns founded in the 16th century. Now, over 420 years old it only opens for special occasions. I was lucky this day to be allowed in where I spent a few minutes in contemplation as some of the nuns went about their work at the alter. The monastery is sui juris. Its worth a visit, but get permission first.
