Very peaceful and well looked after. When I went to sit and pray, a lady was carefully straightening chairs and generally making the place look tidy and cared for. I liked being there

On a cold rainy day we went in here to listen to a short lunchtime concert, 5 pieces on the piano, which made a nice break for the day.

This small church located right in the heart of Valletta just off the main street. It is somewhat difficult to recognize unless you are looking for it. It is shown on some city maps. The inside is gorgeous and the altars and statues are steeped...More

So you could have missed it, but lovely inside. Quiet and calm. Worth a quick stop and some moments of reflection. Interesting history

The Church of St. Francis of Assisi is a truly beautiful church in the centre of Valletta. Mass is celebrated here daily and it is a beautiful service.

This church is quite lovely, with its lavender walls and gold trim and paintings on the ceiling. It is more subdued than St. John's but has its own beauty and is worth seeing.

In any other city this place would stand out, but in Valetta it is overshadowed a bit by the other churches. Undeservedly so as it is well worth a visit for its quiet beauty. We visited partly for a lunchtime recital (which was terrific) and...More

We attended a lunchtime piano recital which was given by Romona Zammit Formosa who played a beautiful selection of music. The recitals usually last about 50 minute and are fund raising events in aid of St. Francis Church.
