The grotto is the place where Paul the apostle is believed to have spent his 3 months when he was shipwrecked on Malta in AD 70. Parts of the grotto are as it was 2000 years ago and so the story comes alive. The catacombs...More

Saint Paul's grotto is pretty small and fresh. Upstairs you have the St. Paul's church itself. It was a nice and interesting visit especially on a hot summer day. You should also be able to visit the catacombs and the world war shelters.

St Paul lived here for a few months nearly 2000 years ago. Moving to think you are in the same place. great experience

you can visit the grotto where St Paul held sermons for 3 years. There is a small chapel built on that place.

We arrived 15 minutes before closing, so we only saw St. Paul's grotto (not the catacombs or WWII museum). However, the grotto is what we came to see and it was well worth it to experience this amazing piece of Christian history!

Normally wouldn't bother but the fee includes the small "art" exhibition above the catacombs and the air raid shelters. A well kept grotto and atmospheric. Biggies have to be left at the reception because of the many stairs.

As already say I don't know of any painting made by St Paul's of the Madonna. I only know of a painting by St Luke but that's in Roma. Maybe you can send a picture of it
