Malta is a country steeped in religious history and tradition, and its numerous churches are a testament to its deep faith. The island is home to over 300 churches, some of which date back hundreds of years and are adorned with beautiful works of art and intricate architecture. At Sunspot Malta, we offer a range of tours that allow you to explore the island’s rich religious heritage and visit some of its most beautiful churches.
One of the more popular religious tour we offer is “In the footsteps of St. Paul.” This tour takes you on a journey through Malta’s religious history, following in the footsteps of St. Paul, who was shipwrecked on the island in AD 60. You’ll visit sites such as the grotto where St. Paul is said to have taken refuge and the Cathedral of St. Paul in Mdina, which houses a stunning display of religious art and artifacts.
Another popular stop on our religious tours is St. Paul’s Shipwreck Church in St. Paul’s Bay. This church is dedicated to the Apostle Paul and features beautiful Baroque architecture and intricate frescoes. The church is a popular pilgrimage site for Catholics and is said to contain a piece of St. Paul’s wrist bone.
In addition to our religious tours, we offer a range of excursions that allow you to explore the island’s beautiful parish churches.These churches are often located in the heart of local villages and offer a glimpse into the daily lives of the Maltese people.
