One of the oldest churches around

A small church with a lot of history, worth popping in to just to have a look at the i credible painting on the roof. Worth a visit if you are walking around Victoria square

Built the year after the Great Siege of 1565, this is where Jean Parisot de Valette, founder of Valletta and 49th Grand Master, was first laid to rest. His body now lies in the amazing St John's Co-Cathedral. This relatively small church is currently being restored but you can still visit and see the results so far. Some good explanatory... More

A typical catholic church in the centre of Valetta. You wouldn't miss anything special if you don't have the time to enter.

This was the first church the Knights of Malta build after winning against the Turkish invasion in the siege of 1556 so it has loads of history. It has been recently restored and is very pretty inside. Nice location as well.

this is one of the first churches to be built in Valletta. It fell into disrepair but with the assistance of PWC the skills of the Courtauld Institute have restored this ancient church. It has beautiful painted ceilings and is well worth a visit. From time to time concerts are held there and it is a lovely setting in which... More

Thought this church would be prettier inside and more interesting due to it being so widely mentioned when you read about Valetta, but I know it's a place of worship so if that's what your after then its ideal for you. I'd rather go back and see the Cathedral which is stunning.

As you walk into the town, from the gate this church lies on your right hand side, down a side street. The church is undergoing restoration - which in itself is very interesting as there is a small display showing the before and after views of the restores wall and roof frescos. The ceiling is very ornately painted and would... More

En route to or from the Upper Barakka gardens. Currently undergoing partial restoration. Free to tour, but donations received gratefully. Guide leaflets in English and Maltese and probably other languages. Viewed in less than an hour.

Work is being carried out to restore the inside - but it is most definetly worth a short visit. Architecture is fascinating - no charge only donations .

Very pretty and quaint church. We stumbled on this on the way to the upper barracks. The ceiling was so beautifully painted and designed. History is really interesting too.
