I have to say the museum was more impressive than the Cathedral itself, especially if you’ve already seen St John’s Co-Cathedral in Valletta. If you’re short on time and can’t see both the cathedral and the museum, go for the museum and take your time there. Some awfully gorgeous paintings which I honestly didn’t expect to find, and special religious memorabilia. Worth a visit!

On the tourist route of things to do in Mdina. Only option was to purchase a joint ticket for the museum & cathedral, as far as I could tell. The museum was packed full of religious memorableia, but not particularly well or interestingly displayed or presented - quite old fashioned actually. The cathedral was impressive, stunning, gob-smackingly ornate but not really my thing! There is a lot of competition in the 'opulent church' tourist market but this one sadly does not stand out or differentiate itself. I understand however that many may appreciate this cathedral for the truly religious significance it represents.

We visited the Mdina Cathedral also known as St Paul's Cathedral today and it was a peaceful visit. There was a sermon happening at the time so we didn't go too much to the front to avoid disturbing the precession. Beautiful architecture from the 12th century and in the silent city, so it's an absolute must do. I've read online that you need tickets to go in but you don't need tickets for the cathedral, it's only required for the museum.

It's a joint ticket with the cathedral museum over the way. The Cathedral is lovely, the museum is substantial, a lot of the same items, such as altar pieces, chalices etc.

As you buy a joint ticket with the cathedral over the road you feel obliged to go. The first major exhibit makes the decision a good one - the apostles figures for the altar in silver. The rest is more mixed- lots of church China and silver and more modern stuff upstairs. Well worth an extra 30 min add on to main museum. Staff also lovely

Having brought a joint ticket, I tackled the museum first.
This is a rather small museum, focusing mainly on art
It has works by Cavelli scattered about the place, and also two sets of sketches by Dura.

The first set depicting creation to revelation, whilst the second focuses entirely on Jesus's life; from birth to crucificion.

There are also ongoing archeological excavations, down in the cellar. Un-earthing the bones of the saints but these are ongoing.

Top Duerer engravings, a full altar piece showing some of Malta's oldest manifestations of the national flag, great silver pieces which survived French occupation. Spectacular!!

The first Cathedral was built in medieval times and damadged during 1693 earthquake.
Current one was rebuilt by Lorenzo Gafa in 1703.
The Cathedral's ceiling is covered with frescos and with paintings covering the life of St Paul's.
The mensa of the main altar of the Cathedral belonged to the old Cathedral's main altar
It is made of marble whereas the upper part is decorated in Lapis Lazuli.
