  St Paul's Church, Rabat
by steventilly

Rabat stands outside of Mdina - in fact this is where the bus stops (or you would park your car) if you are visiting Mdina. A lot of people don't bother to take a look around Rabat after their visit to Mdina, except maybe the area directly outside of the Mdina city wall.
You should go into town and take a look at Rabat. It has some nice old architecture, a good church and some fascinating "underground" attractions. These are St Paul's Grotto, St Paul's Catacombs and St Agatha's Catacombs. These date back to the 3rd century and were (supposedly) where these two saints hid and preached. See my upcoming Rabat page for more information.
