A small church with catacombs that you can view for a small donation. Bodies removed centuries ago and were moved to nearby cemetry and reburied. Really lovely local lady was at the door to welcome you.

Fascinating these catacombs are hewn out of the rock to become burial chambers, there are areas where they ate a meal to honour the dead and they date from the medieval period. Not really disabled friendly though.

The Church of St. Agatha is a beautiful, small church in Mdina, which can be easily missed walking down the streets. Definitely look out for it when you're in town.

We were awestruck by this place. The marble floors, the ceilings, everything. Well worth doing some reading before attending. A historical treasure trove. Beautiful.

Watch carefully as you walk down the street. This appears nothing more than someones front room. But just look inside and this is what you see.
