    Outside pleasant, thanks to the porch that enriches the façade, this church is located at the end of Pjazza Teatru Rejal, in front of the "Our Lady of Victories Church." The Interior is small and bright, almost entirely topped by beautiful Dome, on which stand out gold amongst the ceiling paintings made in grey scale that gives a three-dimensional effect. Among the several paintings present, stands out among all the altar by Mattia Preti, that magnet just look crossed the threshold. Apart from the Cathedral, standing on anything but level and therefore not comparable, that of Saint Catherine is definitely among the best churches in the city. Remember that it is the Church which built community of the Knights of the Italian language and which still represents the meeting point of the Italian Catholic community of Valletta; on Sunday morning we celebrate the SS: mass in Italian.

    It is a typically Maltese Church, like all churches of Malta they hide a richly decorated interior.

Where to stay in Valletta

The small city of Valetta offers fewer lodging options than some of Malta's larger cities, but accommodations include everything from upscale hotels to less-expensive guesthouses. Stay in the city center at one of several old-fashioned hotels to be in close proximity to sights like St. Johns Co-Cathedral, the Presidential Palace, multiple museums, and a wide variety of restaurants. One fun option involves renting traditional Valletta houses that have been converted into rental properties and date back to the time of the Knights of Malta. Smaller bed and breakfasts are dispersed throughout the city. Book well in advance to avoid high prices.
