Give yourself a break from the hustle and bustle of the city, and head towards Wignacourt Museum to have a look at its art and religious artefacts. The building comprises of 3 levels. The underground level consists of interesting architectural features, as well as World War II shelters with two main corridors and about fifty rooms. The ground floor level consists of a spacious garden, which once included an oven during the World War 2, providing daily more than 2000 loaves for the population of Rabat. Originally inaugurated by Grand Master Alof de Wignacourt (1601-1622), this is the place where St Paul the Apostle, in A.D. 60, is believed to have founded the first Christian Community, on the island. Most interesting part of this museum is the air raid shelters in the caves, and catacombs in the underground. The upstairs has few paintings, sculptures and old clothing. To satiate your food cravings, there is a wonderful cafeteria.
