St John's Co-Cathedral is a Roman Catholic co-cathedral situated in the city of Valletta, Malta. The cathedral is dedicated to Saint John. The cathedral was built from 1572-1577, having been commissioned by Grand Master Jean de la Cassière. From the outside, the church looks pretty plain and safe but its interior is stunning and makes it one of the finest Baroque cathedrals in the world. Its interior is decorated by eye-pleasing baroque paintings and golden gilded sculptures. It is the most well-known place of worship in Malta.
The cathedral is situated in the city centre. The 133 bus stops close by. The city is fairly small so the cathedral is accessible on foot from most areas of the city.
Opening Times and Admission
The cathedral is open to visitors on six days of the week. Weekdays 9.30am-4pm and Saturday 9.30am-12pm. Sunday is a weekly day of closure.
