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.

The catacombs and anti-aircraft shelters also, but the underground maze can make some claustrophobic and make you want to go up to the floor quickly.
Αν δεν έχεις δει ποτέ κατακόμβες μπορείς να πας. Το εισιτήριο είναι παμφθηνο, 5€. Αν όμως έχεις δει ή έχεις ακούσει ή απλά μπορείς να βρεις κάτι αντίστοιχο στο ίντερνετ για να δεις μην πας. Όπως όλες ... more »If you've never seen a catacombs, you can go. The ticket is omnivorous, €5. But if you've seen or heard or you can just find something similar on the internet to see you don't go. Like all the catacombs are narrow, stuffy and damp. There's some coffee shops across the street. But if you insist... You can go, it's an experience too!!
Extremely interesting place, with lots of helpful and informative signs and a good escape from the heat as the catacombs are very cool being underground. Give yourself a good amount of time to go around though! Was a little hard to find the entrance as the site is split over two sides of a road but when you see a metal platform with stairs you've found it!
Very interesting. The first catacomb is the largest one. Really good. The other about 20 are much smaller and only interesting for details. In summer you need a brake. Permanent change between hot outside and cold and humid inside.
