This Cathedral is by far the highlight of Mdina! It was originally built in the 12th century then rebuilt in Baroque style after an earthquake. There are frescoes, domes, arches, altars and side chapels all magnificently decorated in Baroque style. Spend at least an hour...More

We visit lots of churches/cathedrals on our travels but Malta has definitely got its fair share of some of the most spectacular we have seen. St. Paul's in the old city of Mdina is one of them and though there is an admission fee, the...More

Just gorgeous and very serene, do pop in while you are in Mdina or you are missing a true gem. Remember modest dress and a headscarf ladies.
