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... ;)
The design/the inside of this place is so magnificent. It costs €10 for adults (under 12s go free) and you're given an audio guide to help with every part of the cathedral. Women have to dress modestly if in shorts/showing shoulders etc as it is a religious place but other factors come into this. The cathedral is hot so plenty of fans inside and so much to explore; I personally loved the balcony the most.
They force women to cover their shoulders and their legs (only if you are thin and more or less young) because they believe you are insulting God with your body??? Despite you have already paid 10 euros (which I believe is more than enough to prove your respect) inside all full of gold if you fancy gold you're gonna like it. Catholics please we need to review our rules when they are extremely stupid. Death to patriarchy.
Very beautiful interior, but very busy. Be prepared to wait at times to get good photos as so many people about. Also be appropriately dressed.
Nice city a like of Dubrovnik. But lack of green - trees is very big thing as in the summer city is very hot from stone. Trees would help.
