Over 350 Churches to be Explored!

With a whopping 359 churches, cathedrals and chapels dotted around the Maltese Islands, the sheer devoutness of the Maltese people is evident wherever you go. The focal point of every village, these houses of worship were the absolute epicentre of daily life and the true timelessness of the nation’s faith can be seen in the varying architectural styles, which evolved throughout the ages. As well as providing insight into the Religious side of people's lives, these ornate and intricately designed buildings are home to a jaw-dropping array of frescos, statues and other artistic masterpieces. Art aficionado or not, the numerous paintings by Caravaggio adorning the magnificent walls of Valletta’s Co-cathedral will leave you truly gob-smacked.
