Very nice church

It is one of the many baroq chruches of Malta. The interior is amazing. Excellent details, you can spend a lot of time to admire it.

...tucked away with the walls of the Citadel this is fantastic to look at with plenty of detail to admire. I stopped to draw it and ended up being an impromptu tourist attraction! The inside was closed when we were there so I have no opinion of it but the church is worth a visit just for the beautiful metalwork... More

We were stuck because we missed our bus getting out of ggantija and walked to the windmill and then on this church and there was a funeral service going on. We sat through and after the people left spent sometime there.

Competes with some of the best European Cathedrals for the elaborate decoration. There was no mass when I visited but I still felt that I could not take photos. It is very dark inside but has a spiritual feeling to it.

We visited on a Sunday late morning and there was a mass going on. You are made welcome (appropriately dressed covering shoulders and legs) should you wish to watch or take part in proceedings.

This is an amazing church hidden in the old town in the narrow streets. The church ornaments are fascinating.

I always enjoy visiting churches and cathedrals wherever we go and this is one of the most beautiful. Gold throughout with seemingly no expense spared! A wonderful sense of tranquility, respect and community. It sits in a pretty little square further away from the larger square which is more of the 'hustle and bustle' and twittering songbirds. Certainly worth dipping... More

A very grand building indeed, such opulence and luxury . Sadly it only makes me think of the squalid conditions of the people living around this church when it was built and possibly to this day.

Lavishly decorated but for an average non-Catholic tourist not likely to be that distinguishable from many other similar superb baroque style churches on the island. It does have in its favour the fact that it is conveniently located in the centre of the city and adjacent to the Archaeology Museum and you can see both and take in lunch in... More

Stopping for some lunch in the square outside the church, we had plenty of time to admire the facade of this stunning church (Maltese service leaves a lot to be desired). Inside, the darkness and ornate Baroque decor add to an air of reverence, irrespective of your religion. Malta is full of beautiful churches and this certainly does not disappoint... More
