Create an itinerary including St Paul's Catacombs
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. Put St Paul's Catacombs at the forefront of your travel plans using our Rabat itinerary website.

  • A modest admission charge for a range of catacombs plus a small exhibition and gardens. Admission can also be combined with other nearby attractions.

  • 6€ to see stones and most of the Catacombs were closed.
  • Good video to start. Good museum with additional satellite areas to read. You can explore the catacombs on your own. There are many. The only thing we wished is that they highlighted points of interest inside the catacombs. They may also need to worry a bit about alge. We enjoyed the site. We spent 2 hrs and saw everything. Most people will do it faster.
