Once you enter the Rotunda you cannot stop being amazed about its beauty. Made of honey-colored Malta limestone, inside the Rotunda is 64m long and 43m wide.
The fantastic dome with an outer circumference of 85m is supported by 8 columns, while the church has 16 large windows in the lower section and another 16 in the lantern.
The Main Altar is surrounded by 6 side chapels designed by Guze' Galea of Malta with beautiful carvings of Anthony Camilleri and paintings of the young Gozitan artist Paul Camilleri Cauchi.
