Never have I seen a facade as lavish! For my taste, is the best of all in Malta! A must! Admission cost us 5 euros and 3'50 for students (in April of 2012). It takes about 1 hour to visit and listen to the audio guide.
The cathedral is embedded in Rabat city centre in the heart of the historic quarter. A tall and simple facade, two bell towers where the huge bells are still operated by hand. The Maltese cross can be found right at the top and in the centre we see how strong an influence the church still has on this islnd. Inside everything looks more looked after than in our Spanish churches. Fresh, glowing windows and religious motifs all around. On this occasion I recorded a wedding ceremony, a bride, groom and lots of guest ... until I got caught!
St Paul's Pro-Cathedral is situated in Valletta, in the old town. It lies at the end of Archbishop street and is on the corner of West Street. The church dedicated many artistic treasures to St. Paul, including some excellent paintings, especially paintings from the 16th Century. The statue in the procession is considered to be one of the best you can see in Malta. This is the building that most stands out in Valletta, as its dome can be seen from anywhere. The tour is free, and the guide is very friendly.
