Hi, I believe they are signposted. However if you head towards the larger St Pauls catacombs, St Agathas is just a bit further down the road. Heading south on Triq Sant Agata you will walk past St pauls. 1 minute further along, on your right will be a set of steps and a tree lined walk leading to St Agathas.
