Discover St. John's Cathedral Malta

The quintessence of Baroque art, Saint John's cathedral is one of the "must see" sites in 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, the walls of which are decorated with sculpted designs: the Maltese cross, floral designs and various emblems. The stunning pavement is made of polychromic marble tomb stones covering the mortal remains of prominent families of the 16th and 17th Centuries. Inaugurated in 1816 by the Pope, its status rivals that of the St Paul's Cathedral in Mdina.

    The architect of the cathedral, Gerolamo Cassar, also designed the fortifications surrounding the city of Valletta.

    As the cathedral was also a tomb for knights, you'll see many tombstones marked out on the ground.
