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.

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.
