    The Church on a pedestrian street. I went because I was open. Like all other churches in Malta-beautiful. Was to act to stop the eye and focus on prayer. I personally enjoyed that in the main church and in the lateral nave, I spotted the images. Maximilian Maria Kolbe and interestingly in the aisle I experienced also Christmas-beautiful Christmas crib!!

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.
