Discover Saint John's Cathedral Malta

The quintessence of Baroque art, Saint John cathedral is one of the ultimate sites of Valletta. Its name is reminiscent of the predominance of the Order of Knights of Saint John in Malta's religious architecture. Its very plain and somewhat austere exterior contrasts sharply with its nave whose walls are decorated with sculpted designs: Cross of Malta, floral designs and various emblems. The stunning pavement is made of polychromic marble tomb stones covering the remains of prominent families of the 16th and 17th centuries.
