Create an itinerary including St. Agatha's Crypt, Catacombs & Museum
Explore the ancient underground system of St. Agatha's Crypt, Catacombs & Museum, the earliest and largest archeological site with evidence of Christianity in Malta. Take a tour through a series of interconnected cemeteries dating back to Roman times, where you can see well-preserved frescoes and even skeletons. Don't leave before viewing the history museum above ground, where collections of fossils, pottery, statues, religious items, and coins are displayed. Keep in mind the catacombs tour includes dark and small spaces, and claustrophobic visitors might not be comfortable. Photos are not allowed in the tombs. Plan my day in Rabat using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.
