This marble Basilica is intricately and beautifully decorated with soaring ceilings. It is visited by tour groups throughout the day so the best times to visit are early in the morning or late afternoon when it becomes a peaceful haven.

This is a truly beautiful place. The ladies have to cover their shoulders when entering but shawls are available to loan at the impressive entrance. Beautiful art on the ceilings and walls and a real sense of history.

This church is stunning and should not be missed. Superb and ornate interior. Second only to St John’s Co-Cathedral in Valletta. I attended mass at St George’s on Sunday which was a lovely experience. The church is set in a lovely square.

Hard to believe something this beautiful would be on this small island. We just so happened to be here the day before St. George's feast day was to start being celebrated. They were decorating Victoria with banners, lights, and statues. In front of the Basilica...More
