St Paul's Catacombs, Rabat

4.1
Explore the complex of interconnected underground Roman cemeteries, in use up to the 4th century CE, at St Paul's Catacombs. The earliest archaeological evidence of Christianity in Malta, the catacombs display various tomb types, like the baldacchino tombs, which are free-standing, canopied burials with grand arches and pillars. Other decorations within the catacombs include illustrations and written messages. Be advised that the catacombs are very dark, with steep stairs and uneven flooring. They may be difficult to manage for those with mobility issues or claustrophobia.

  • It surprises the amount of catacombs and its conservation, finding the subsoil completely hollow. Very interesting visit

  • A very interesting and suggestive place, formed by a network of thin and low burrows. Small, but to visit absolutely.

  • Better signage would be great. At least you know what you are looking at before entering the separate sites. Also many outside maps are totally faded. Otherwise it is not to be missed. Good job!
  • I generally anti death and dead bodies.... but this place was amazing. Walking down all the tunnels into the tombs was fascinating. The preservation and upkeep was spectacular. The little ones actually enjoyed this site and it's catacombs.
