Cave
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.

  • Despite a little guidance animated and responsive, I highly recommend you be guided inside the catacombs. Low and narrow corridors with paintings and find of bones, maybe you are not recommended to anyone who is too fat, tall or claustrophobic. The Museum upstairs is a hodgepodge of items ranging from stones, religious objects and fossils and lockers all covered by dust. I don't recommend wasting too much time with the Museum and to spend more time instead to the catacombs.
