St Johns Co Cathedral - Review
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
Caravaggio's magnificent masterpiece inside! This seemingly unpretentious co-cathedral is home to some amazing art works, including the above mentioned early produced Caravaggio. It is worth every single minute you put aside in your visit to Malta in order to contemplate it! Take your time and hope for a moment when the tourist lines are not too thick... Late afternoons seem to be the best choice, I guess... So do whatever you wish to do in Malta and come back to this place after four pm. You'll have Caravaggio all for yourself, believe me... ;)
Very beautiful sacred building that has an enormous history. It is very well detailed and had handheld devices in many languages explaining all the various chapels and backgrounds to paintings and statues of the different religious icons and Grand Masters of Malta. A very educational visit.
There is no other way to describe this building than as a masterpiece! Thank goodness that money could once get you closer to heaven because otherwise, such splendour could never have been achieved! Everything about it is lavish! The audio guide is in depth and very thorough with the details of each spectacle your eyes connect with
Great place for people, who love love history and arts. Come here, explore and enjoy beautiful tapestries collection and Caravaggio masterpieces. When you get there, you won't want to go out, I am sure.
10€ entrance fee, no need to dress modestly, they have paper shawls you can borrow to cover yourself. Be sure to plan at least an hour here, we went in At 3:30 and was kicked out by 4:15 and felt rushed. The audio guide was very boring, but it’s better than nothing.
