The cathedral was built from 1572-1577, having been commissioned by Grand Master Jean de la Cassière.

Its interior is decorated by eye-pleasing baroque paintings and golden gilded sculptures. It is the most well-known place of worship in Malta.

Getting there

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.

Doesn't disappoint


After doing my research on the city, i had high hopes for this cathedral and it doesn't disappoint. Although maybe a little pale on the outside, the interior was impressive with solid detail in the painting and a large amount of gold on display. I got speak to a staff member who was happy to educate me on the building.
