Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I was blown away by the beauty and adornment of this remarkable church. Would be easy to miss - only open after 1730 - but would be a shame to do so. Excellent paintings of St Paul especially during the shipwreck and extremely beautiful church

The St.Paul’s shipwreck church is one of the most incredible interiors I have seen. Well worth a visit. Needs a refurb but the u dwelling beauty is evident.

There are so many amazing churches to visit in Malta, and, of course, in Valletta, the capital city, and this particular church tucked away on a side street as you stroll by shops and restaurants is almost hidden away. It's claim to fame is Paul's wrist-bone.
See attached 10 highlighted photos; as with other churches, a photo album is easily created and these reviews are necessarily limited to a few for you to consider adding to your itinerary of not enough days to see everything, what to see and what must wait another day or be missed on that once in a lifetime holiday... .

I had missed this place on my last visit to Malta and am so glad I made it. Ladies will need to cover their shoulders and legs to go in so advise not wearing shorts and a vest top or you will have to borrow a shawl.

To say the place is free (donations requested) blows my mind given the beauty of the church and the relics! It is easily as amazing as St John's.

Not easy to find ( just a normal doorway). Once inside you will find a real gem, frescos, a dome , gold fittings. A real church with atmosphere, a place of worship.
Much better than the tourist attraction churches.

The first time I saw this church I stood with tears rolling down my face. Having been in the ostentatious St John's Cathedral this is just as beautiful, if not better because it is too quaint.

All of the ceilings are painted in gorgeous frescos. Every alcove is dedicated to a Saint with more frescoes and paintings.

There is no entrance fee but I usually make a €5 donation for the upkeep and renovations to the church.

It's not easy to find as it's on a side street. Disabled visitors will find it hard to reach this church as the road is very steep and there is a large step into the church. As with all churches in Malta all shoulders (male and female) need to be covered - shoulder coverings are provided - and admittance with short shorts will not be permitted. I find a sarong useful for these times.
