St. Paul's Cathedral - Mdina Cathedral, Mdina: 22 reviews and 63 photos
There is documentation of a cathedral on this site dating back to the 12th century. In January 1693 the old cathedral was destroyed by a giant earthquake. Maltese architect Lorenzo Gafa was commissioned to design the new building and work started in 1697.
The cathedral was closed when I visited Mdina. I therefore didn't get to see the frescoed nave ceiling or the inside of the dome. My memories of the cathedral are the way it dominated the centre of Mdina & its change in colour when going from being bathed in sunshine to being in the shade. The other memory is of seeing its dome & towers from many miles away.
