The Metropolitan Cathedral of Saint Paul Nov 29, 2013
The Metropolitan Cathedral of Saint Paul or more commonly known as St. Paul's cathedral is the main attraction of the walled city of mdina.
located in the middle of the fortified city, the cathedral towers above all the surrounding structures. it was built around the 15th century to replace the old church which was destroyed by an earthquake. the cathedral of baroque design was built using the special stone which could only be found in malta, painted inside by intricate frescoes in the walls and ceilings and decorated by extravagance of the baroque period.
it is allowed to take pictures inside as long as you dont use flash, so if you have a tripod with you, you can use it to stabilize the pictures you take.
the cathedral is not difficult to find all the streets in the fortress town of mdina lead into it and you have to pay a small amount to enter it but it is worthwhile.
