This stunning building in Malta has been showered with great praise from architecture enthusiasts all over the world. It is considered to be one of the most impressive illustrations of Baroque architecture. Such high praise certainly ensures that it is a tourist destination par excellence and undoubtedly a must-visit. It has a rich and interesting history and is still a very important place of worship. The imposing building stands as a symbol of Malta in many ways.
While the exteriors are remarkable so are the interiors. Well preserved and ornately furnished, the interiors of the cathedral are a real sight to be beheld. The dark and lovely carpets, walls decorated in gold and scarlet and the intricate architecture come together to make the church an absolute must visit in Malta. If you only have time to see one thing in Malta make it the St. John’s Co- Cathedral.

St Johns Co Cathedral, Valletta Reviews - Write a Review
A masterpiece of baroque art; a must-see place in Valletta. There is an entrance fee (10 €). Comprehensive audio guides are available in several major languages. Every piece of art, chapel and other parts of the church are described in detail. Unfortunately, the church is overcrowded and not all visitors respect the place of worship. Shorts and sandals can be occasionally seen, as well as taking selfies in front of the altar. When I was visiting (10.2017), the museum was closed.
Incredible decoration, almost a bit difficult to take in. Someone got a really good deal on gold leaf and marble. Makes every other church I've ever been (and I include the Vatican) to look dull and restrained
A beautiful and historic monument with amazing treasures of art! However, how can this gem be closed on Saturday and Sunday when a lot of tourists come to Valletta? That's really absurd!
Good place to visit. Historical landmark. The Cathedral main attractions are the expensive ceiling and forts which are embedded with lavish brock handy work and painted with scenes from the life of John the Baptist. This cathedral is home to many known works of arts.
Stuninng Cathederal and a very comprehensive audio tour but need to allow lots of time if you want to look at everything described. Probably 2 to 3 hours. We had one hour but had to leave at 4.30 as they were closing and missed a number of the audio points, the museum and shop.
