The impressive structure was built by the Knights of Malta between 1573 and 1578. The interior boasts intricately carved walls, a painted vaulted ceiling, and a marble floor made up of Knight's tombs. The cathedral's chapels are filled with elaborate riches and dedicated to the different patron saints of the Knights.

We have visited the Co Cathedral on several occasions and even if you are not religious it is worth seeing. The audio tour is excellent and the Carravagio paintings are quite stunning.

The history and the heart of the Order of Saint John! Absolutely stunning cathedral! Definitely you won't want to miss it! The artwork is incredible! The audioguide will tell the story of the cathedral, believe me it is very exciting! Every chapel worth a separate tour! I love come there!
The cathedral is the only place that delights and tells the story of Malta. Really unique, with rich decorations, frescoes, paintings and sculptures. A unique and exceptional place that should be (for me) in the first place. Since August is absolutely drought all over Malta, the views are not very pleasing to the eye. The cathedral definitely pleases the eye, there is one downside, on Wednesday it is too hot, the whole crowd of visitors was wet like in a sauna, fans placed in many places did not cool. 1h hour, with automatic gid (in many languages).
